Sure Cleveland has the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but the recent expansion of the Museum of Art should satisfy anyone looking for some great artwork.
Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, Rodin and other masters are the stars of the biggest expansion in the history of the Cleveland Museum of Art, and that suits architect Rafael Vinoly just fine. “When you feel that you are looking at the art and that the building accompanies the art — as opposed to opposes it or challenging it — I think I feel happy with that,” Vinoly said. The first of the museum’s new galleries opens June 27, part of an eight-year, $335 million renovation that will increase the museum’s size by 50% by 2013. – From USA Today
