Leslie Cade, Director of Ingalls Library and Museum Archives
Come to the CMA for a quick bite of art history. Every first Tuesday of each month, join curators, conservators, scholars, and other museum staff for 30-minute talks on objects currently on display in the museum galleries.
The Cleveland Museum of Art is renowned for the quality and breadth of its collection. Throughout the years, the museum has relied on the expertise and generosity of benefactors, many of whom were women, to achieve this goal. In this lecture, Leslie Cade, director of Ingalls Library and Museum Archives, introduces a few of these extraordinary women, including Emery May Norweb, whose Pre-Columbian art formed the basis of the museum’s collection in that area, and India Early Minshall, an expert in Russian history and Fabergé.
