Cleveland Museum of Art opens the doors to their new Community Arts Center

CMA announced the grand opening of their new Community Arts Center.

It’s no secret that Cleveland is a city bursting with creativity and artistic talent. From after school rec center painting to masterclasses with the experts: Clevelander’s from all walks of life have made their mark on the artistic world. Now these same artists will have a chance to display their work to the public – thanks to the Cleveland Museum of Art.

For decades the Cleveland Museum of Art has encouraged and engaged the greater Cleveland community with one goal in mind: create. Between their annual chalk festival, lantern festival, and the Parade the Circle – the opening of the Community Arts Center only adds to a growing list.

[…] foster connections, creating community, and introducing new audiences to art, and the museum, and our collection. The community arts center will do just that – welcoming audiences unfamiliar with the museum and engaging them in the creative process.

Director, Cleveland Museum of Art

The Arts Center is currently home to the Parade the Circle: Celebrating 30 Years of Art and Community exhibit. As COVID-19 safety regulations are relaxed, CMA hopes to offer even more programming at the arts center, including:

  • Daily studio and gallery experiences for schools and community groups, with tours and activities led by local artists
  • Daily public hours with studio and gallery experiences
  • Classes and workshops led by local teaching artists for children, adults, and families
  • Drop-in activities for all ages
  • Guest artist workspaces
  • Conservation projects
  • After-school arts experiences and summer camps
  • Activities and workspaces for community members participating in Parade the Circle, Chalk Festival, and the Lantern Festival

 â€œWe hope to connect with new audiences through a range of arts programs and look forward to collaborating with neighborhood partners to enrich the transformative experiences that we offer to all audiences.”
