Cleveland


First time to the Cleveland Art Museum - and it is such a beautiful place!  I'm not sure what the details are, but I guess it just received a major renovation and there are parts that are still not open to the public.

This is a large indoor/out room central in the museum. I felt like I was in a giant terrarium!

I studied Pre-Columbian art for a long time in undergrad - I think they have a major PC collection that is not open now?  Here are some closeups of a Mayan vessel:



I love the Medieval times - freakin' huge space devoted to armour, crossbows, and  chainmail.  Badass.

And maybe a little...







A couple of pieces that resonated in the modern art galleries.
