I greatly hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to see Wari: Lords of the Ancient Andes while it is in Cleveland through January 6th of next year.
I invite to you partake in this once-in-a-lifetime event to see amazing, older art in this free exhibition.
Many departments and people within the museum are working together to get ready for Wari: Lords of the Ancient Andes. For instance, conservators and the curator are in constant collaboration to accomplish this goal. Between 600 and 1000, long before the Inca, the Wari forged a complex society widely regarded today as ancient Peru’s first empire.
This is part 2 of the Cleveland Museum of Art’s members’ trip to Kent State University’s Textile Arts/Weaving Studio and to view Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen at the Kent State University Museum on April 9.

Calling all fashionable Clevelanders! (I’m talking to you!) Do you want the chance to pick up hot, new clothing and accessories while supporting the museum? On October 17, the Textile Art Alliance (TAA), an affiliate group of the museum, will hold its seventh annual fashion show and boutique. This is a totally unique fashion event in Cleveland since the runway show features artist designed and hand-crafted wearable art for day and evening.
