Explore the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art by getting a closer look.  

Courses give lifelong learners the opportunity to form a deeper connection with the museum and enrich their understanding of the CMA’s collection of art and artifacts from around the world.  

All sessions are conducted in the museum galleries.

Join us for the next installment of the CMA’s “A Closer Look” courses, which continues our exploration of the museum’s collection into the medieval period and beyond. Priority registration for members begins on September 14, 2023, and members receive special pricing. There are two sections of the course to choose from this fall: Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. or Fridays at 11:00 a.m.

This four-week course introduces the art of the medieval world using objects from the CMA’s encyclopedic collection to demonstrate the connections between cultures in Europe, the Americas, and Asia. Artworks discussed cover a broad range of time, spanning from the 300s to 1600s. Individual sessions focus on cross-cultural themes, such as holy and sacred families, architecture and original contexts, vessels of everyday life, and symbols of power.
