The Cleveland Exposition of Artists and Craftsmen opened six years after the 1913 Armory Show in New York. By this time, the revolutionary implications of European paintings and sculpture shown there had been largely absorbed. Although there was an active modernist movement in Cleveland that emerged around 1910, in the first decade of the May Show very little of modernist influences could be found. The local press denounced the movement and art schools focused on teaching traditional techniques.
