The Way We Were

Built when the City of Cleveland was coming of age, the museum is a physical manifestation of the hopes and dreams of a community hungry for access to arts and culture.  It was by design that the art museum and other cultural institutions were built within walking distance of each other. One hundred years later we celebrate the ongoing achievement of the museum with an exhibition of archival images that illustrate significant and unique moments in our history. The images selected for the exhibition provide a unique look at how the museum became what it is today. 

Matisse and Verve

In 1937 art critic and publisher Tériade contacted his longtime friend Henri Matisse for help with his latest project, an art magazine he called Verve. High-quality lithographic color reproductions of artworks would set Verve apart from Tériade’s other publications Cahiers d’art and Minotaure. Tériade wanted this new venture to attract a wider audience and make artwork more accessible to the general public.

New Discoveries for the Portable Altar of Countess Gertrude

In October of 2011, during the London venue of Treasures of Heaven: Saints, Relics and Devotion in Medieval Europe a multitude of experts met at the British Museum to share their knowledge in the study of relics, reliquaries, saints and pilgrimage.  It was a three-day congress of art historians, historians, archaeologists, conservators and scientists, all gathered to give papers and create a landmark publication. The Cleveland Museum of Art was invited to participate.
