CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Museum of Art was recently featured by an art critic in the New York Times in an article titled "Finding a Globe’s Worth of Art Treasures Close to Home."
The art citric, Jason Farago, said before the coronavirus pandemic, he would think nothing of jetting to East Asia or South Africa for a single exhibition or performance, neglecting art institutions that were just a time zone or two away from his New York City home.
So his post-pandemic resolution was to visit art museums in the Midwest. Equipped with some KN95 masks and his car, he embarked on a Cleveland-to-Detroit road trip to see what global 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 is the latest exhibition "Private Lives: Home and Family in the Art of the Nabis."

Lucky for Clevelanders, viewing the exhibition is a short drive away. It's on display until Sept. 19.
