About The Event

Every third Saturday of each month, stop by the Ames Family Atrium between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to get a firsthand look at the art-making process. Each session provides the opportunity to engage and interact with a different Northeast Ohio maker during pop-up demonstrations and activities. See their work unfold and learn how artists create. Explore a related selection of authentic objects from the CMA’s education art collection in a pop-up Art up Close session. See, think, and wonder.  

At this month’s event, celebrate World Photography Day. Learn about the collodion photographic process, which is more than 170 years old, during demonstrations with artist Greg Martin. Enter a special drawing for the chance to have your portrait taken by the artist, explore the surfaces of photographs with the museum’s Mellon Fellow in photograph conservation, Ivey Barker, and discover photographic works from the CMA’s education art collection.
