The Ames Family Atrium is the majestic centerpiece to the museum's recently completed eight-year expansion and renovation project. Designed by Rafael Viñoly, the soaring, three story high ceiling accentuates the grandeur of the glass-enclosed space, centrally located in the heart of the world-renowned galleries of the museum. The atrium is a blank slate suitable for a diverse suite of gatherings.

The Cleveland Museum of Art continues to collect artworks of exceptional aesthetic and historical significance, strengthening a comprehensive collection that is widely considered to be one of the finest of its type in the country. Some of the most recent major purchases include an oil painting by Max Beckmann, a leading figure in the German Expressionist and New Objectivity movements, and rare garments from the Mbuun people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and from the Hausa or Nupe people of Nigeria or Niger. Notable gifts include the entire “Social Graces” series published by renowned photographer Larry Fink in 1984, and a Song dynasty marbled bowl created in response to glassware imported from areas like Persia, to the west of China.
