In response to the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) guidelines issued in June 1998, the paintings department of the Cleveland Museum of Art embarked upon a major research project to investigate in depth the provenance of paintings that might relate to Nazi-era art looting during the period 1933–1945.
THE FRAN AND WARREN RUPP CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS LECTURE SERIES
The Cleveland Museum of Art presents British Drawings from the Cleveland Museum of Art, the first exhibition to showcase the collection of British drawings ranging from the 18th century through the Edwardian era. Visitors will have a rare opportunity to see more than 50 fragile, light sensitive drawings in graphite, ink, chalk, pastel and watercolor, revealing over 150 years of artistic achievement in Britain. Works by some of Britain’s best known artists, such as Thomas Gainsborough, William Blake, J.M.W. Turner, John Ruskin and Edward Burne-Jones will be on view. Organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art, the exhibition will be on view from February 10 through May 26, 2013.
After an eight-year hiatus, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Pre-Columbian, Native North American, Japanese, Korean and textile collections will return to public view on Sunday, June 30. The works will be showcased in the museum’s new north wing galleries, located on the second floor adjacent to the new, soaring glass atrium. Designed by architect Rafael Viñoly, the north wing is flanked on either side by the new east wing, which includes the contemporary, modern and impressionist collections, and the west wing, opening in December 2013.
1967 was the year of the “Summer of Love.” It was also a pivotal year in the history of movies. This July and August we present seven groundbreaking works that mark their 50th anniversary in 2017. All will be shown from 35mm film in Morley Lecture Hall.
We are honored to recognize the following donors whose gifts to Transformation: The Campaign for the Cleveland Museum of Art supported the Viñoly building project and the renovation of the 1916 building façade and terrace.
The following list salutes the individuals, families, and organizations whose named endowment funds for art purchase, specific purpose, and operations provide an assured source of income for the museum and serve as an eternal symbol of their generosity and foresight.
