Cleveland native Allen Ruppersberg (born 1944) pays homage to his hometown in this new body of work. The illuminated photographs were taken from the vantage point of billboards across Cleveland—from the roadways along Lake Erie and the steelyards to the mouth of the Cuyahoga River.
A leading figure of American Pictorialist photography, Ohio-born Clarence H. White (1871–1925) was an influential teacher and a gifted artist celebrated for his beautiful scenes of quiet domesticity and outdoor idylls.
Over the last four decades, Dara Birnbaum (American, b. 1946) has created a vital body of video art.
This installation combines new commissions by Marlon de Azambuja (Brazilian,
born 1978) and Luisa Lambri (Italian, born 1969).
Drawn from the museum’s collection, this exhibition features work by contemporary artists who exploit printed and photographic media in ways that intentionally reveal the confusing line between art and information, fact and fiction.
Vibrantly patterned woven, printed, and embroidered textiles join the museum’s collection of rare Kelmscott Press books in this exhibition exploring William Morris, the Victorian designer and poet who was a pioneer of the Arts and Crafts movement.
