CLEVELAND — The holidays are approaching and if you want to be surrounded by the holiday cheer but not the cold that comes with it, the Cleveland Museum of Art is offering extended hours for two of its current exhibitions: Michelangelo: Mind of the Master and Tiffany in Bloom: Stained Glass Lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany.
The museum, which usually closes at 5 p.m. on Saturdays, will have extended hours on Saturdays, Nov. 30, Dec. 28 and Jan.4. Mind of the Master and Tiffany in Bloom will remain open until 8:00 p.m.
A special Tiffany’s pop-up bar in the museum’s central atrium, also open until 8 p.m., will pay homage to the two special exhibitions, along with a selection of Italian wine. Other made-to-order cocktails and beer will be available for purchase.
Provenance Restaurant, located inside the museum, will have a special prix fixe menu inspired by Michelangelo’s grocery list. The menu includes porcini and fennel soup, seared Walleye and tofu caccaitore, among other options.
The Tiffany in Bloom exhibition features 20 illuminated stained glass lamps and other Art Nouveau creations. Admission is free.
The Mind of Master showcases working sketches of one of Western art history's most influential masters, Michelangelo Buonarroti. Tickets for this exhibition are free for CMA members and $7 for member guests. Adults $15, groups of 10 or more $10, seniors $10, college students $5, children 6–17 $5, and children 5 and under free.
