About The Event

Clarissa von Spee leads a tour through the exhibition Cai Guo-Qiang: Cuyahoga River Lightning, which features three monumental gunpowder-ignited works that reflect the artist’s thoughts on the state of our planet, wildlife, and the world’s diminishing natural reserves of fresh water. The Cleveland Museum of Art is pleased to present this program and exhibition as part of Cuyahoga50, a citywide commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the last Cuyahoga River fire and celebration of the progress made toward clean water for all. Free; no registration required.
