Today at the Museum
Wednesday, September 17, 2014
Join us the third Wednesday of each month for a casual and lively discussion led by a museum educator in the galleries—just for parents and caregivers and their pre-toddler age (18 months and younger) children.
This course surveys the history of American visual art and its cultural contexts from the 1700s until the present.
There’s nothing better than tagging along on a public tour to learn new perspectives and hear great storytelling about the works in our collections. Public tours are offered daily at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Tours depart from the Information Desk in the Atrium, where docent guide and topic will be listed.
In this powerful early film from the director of The Third Man and Oliver!, the college-educated son of a coal miner returns to his northern England hometown to take part in a labor dispute with the colliery owners. From an A.J. Cronin novel.
Unequaled in his artistic and technical execution of woodcuts and engravings, 16th-century German artist Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) revolutionized the art of printmaking. The exhibition Dürer’s Women: Images of Devotion & Desire features over fifty of his impressions from the Cleveland Museum of Art’s distinguished collection of Dürer’s prints and considers the artist’s multivalent depictions of women over the course of his career.
Epic Systems: Three Monumental Paintings by Jennifer Bartlett will bring together Bartlett’s most ambitious works in an installation that spans the entirety of her significant career.
An exhibition of 15 botanically inspired luxury textiles drawn from CMA’s exemplary collection.
A selection of Signer’s early Super 8 films and some of his more recent videos that document his spectacular, yet stunningly simple actions and performances will be on view in the Video Project Room.
This exhibition focuses on relationships among the photographic work of three artists active during the 1970s that drew on ideas of surrealist/Dada culture of the 1920s and 1930s and influenced succeeding generations of photographers and media artists. Each embraced photography as one element of an artistic practice guided as much by literature, philosophy, and an attention to popular culture as by classical formal concerns of the medium. Yet, photographic process and context remained important to them.
