Artist in the Atrium

Every third Saturday of each month, stop by the Ames Family Atrium to get a firsthand look at the art-making process. Each session will provide you 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.

The exhibition Tales of the City: Drawing in the Netherlands from Bosch to Bruegel shows cities as places of artistic collaboration. Artist Matthew Kolodziej invites visitors to collaborate on the creation of a reimagined cityscape. Draw or photograph your favorite details from images of cityscapes found across the museum (including in Tales of the City) and add them to the expanding collage.
