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. 

Since its acquisition nearly 20 years ago, the Cleveland Apollo has taken its place as both a CMA visitor favorite and a rare example of a nearly intact large-scale ancient bronze sculpture. Cast in hollow bronze sections using the indirect lost-wax technique, the sculpture still appears strikingly lifelike today, many centuries after its creation. Learn more about the latest CMA research into its ancient manufacture and modern reconstruction.
