CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Museum of Art was recently featured by a New York Times art critic in an article titled “Finding the Value of a Globe of Art Treasures Near Home”.
Citric art Jason Farago said before the coronavirus pandemic that he would not think of traveling to East Asia or South Africa for a single exhibition or performance, neglecting art institutions located a short distance away. or two time zones from his home in New York. .
His post-pandemic resolution, therefore, was to visit art museums in the Midwest. Equipped with a few KN95 masks and his car, he embarked on a road trip from Cleveland to Detroit to see what the world’s treasures were in his backyard.
“For a museum of its size and importance, Cleveland offers an abundance of intimate encounters,” he wrote.
Farago said what finally convinced him to come to Cleveland was the latest “Private Lives: Home and Family in the Art of the Nabis” exhibition.
