Today at the Museum
Wednesday, November 14, 2018
Join us the second or third Wednesday of each month for a casual and lively discussion led by a museum educator in the galleries—just for parents and caregivers and their pre-toddler age (18 months and younger) children.
Public tours are offered daily at 1:00 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
Chinese art scholar and professor Noelle Giuffrida discusses the history of collecting and exhibiting Chinese art in post-World War II America through the lens of the career of renowned Cleveland curator and museum director Sherman E. Lee (1918–2008).
Cleveland native Allen Ruppersberg (born 1944) pays homage to his hometown in this new body of work. The illuminated photographs were taken from the vantage point of billboards across Cleveland—from the roadways along Lake Erie and the steelyards to the mouth of the Cuyahoga River.
A leading figure of American Pictorialist photography, Ohio-born Clarence H. White (1871–1925) was an influential teacher and a gifted artist celebrated for his beautiful scenes of quiet domesticity and outdoor idylls.
Over the last four decades, Dara Birnbaum (American, b. 1946) has created a vital body of video art.
This installation combines new commissions by Marlon de Azambuja (Brazilian,
born 1978) and Luisa Lambri (Italian, born 1969).
Vibrantly patterned woven, printed, and embroidered textiles join the museum’s collection of rare Kelmscott Press books in this exhibition exploring William Morris, the Victorian designer and poet who was a pioneer of the Arts and Crafts movement.
