The May Show was a juried exhibition of local artists held at the Cleveland Museum of Art from 1919 to 1993. This database contains May Show artist and object information published in the Cleveland Museum of Art Bulletin and data compiled from archival May Show records such as entry cards. Entry categories were determined annually and changed over time. The archives have only a very limited number of images of award-winning May Show objects that may be scanned upon request. Images of winning entries were also published in the bulletin.
