Enjoy the Museum from Home
Stay connected! Art connects us, and that is no less true now, as we are called upon to distance ourselves physically from our friends, neighbors, and colleagues. Read about some of CMA's new digital resources on the blog and dive into the wealth of digital resources CMA has to offer on our new homepage.

The CMA’s new video series shares insights of CMA curators and staff from home on current exhibitions, as well as objects around the collection, during this time that the museum is obliged to temporarily shut our doors. New videos are added weekly. Catch up on CMA's YouTube channel.
