Building Cleveland's Collection: From the Museum's Beginnings to the Keithly Collection (In-Person)

Professional Staff
Cleveland Museum of Art
Tuesdays, September 27 - November 1
1-2 p.m. ET

Every museum collection has a story to tell. This course offers a critical look at how benefactors have helped shape the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art. Using the CMA’s expansive holdings as a model, audiences will gain an understanding of how art museum collections are built, and how collecting patterns and priorities have changed over time. This course will also include a session on The Keithley Collection, an exhibition that celebrates the extraordinary gift of 100 Impressionist and Modernist works of art to the museum by Clevelanders Joseph P. and Nancy F. Keithley to the Cleveland Museum of Art – the most significant gift since the bequest of Leonard C. Hanna Jr. in 1958.
