Play Day: Illuminate

Sunday, December 4, 2022, 12:00–4:00 p.m.
Ames Family Atrium and Parker Hannifin Corporation Donor Gallery (North Courtyard Lobby)


Join us this December as we play with light and shadow. Play Days at the CMA are opportunities for the whole family to be creative, be curious, and connect through art.  

This winter’s program focuses on the different ways artists explore illumination in their work, including using color to represent radiance and happiness, showing contrast in painting using lights and darks, and exploring how light can change as it shines through different lenses and colors. The afternoon includes art-making activities, music, games, and more.

The event features the following activities:​ 

All education programs at the Cleveland Museum of Art are underwritten by the CMA Fund for Education. Major annual support is provided by the Womens Council of the Cleveland Museum of Art. Generous annual support is provided by Brenda and Marshall Brown, the Sam J. Frankino Foundation, Florence Kahane Goodman, and Eva and Rudolf Linnebach. Additional annual support is provided by Gail Bowen in memory of Richard L. Bowen, Mr. and Mrs. Walter R. Chapman Jr., the Jeffery Wallace Ellis Trust in memory of Lloyd H. Ellis Jr., the Giant Eagle Foundation, and Roy Smith.
