Arts & Crafts Movement in Europe and America 1880-1920 at CMA


Mark Urycki
The Cleveland Museum of Art has a new exhibition that focuses on the Arts and Crafts movement that flourished at the turn of the 20th century. It's the last exhibition at the museum before it closes for construction. Because most of the permanent collection is in storage, this show is able to expand into more gallery space, and feature 300 objects. Three of them are Cleveland's own items that have never been displayed until now.
