    CMA or the Cleveland Museum of Art is located in University Circle in Cleveland, Ohio that contains a permanent collection of over 43,000 artworks. Admission is free, except for special exhibits and events. In 2008, the museum reopened 19 of their permanent galleries that were housed in the historic 1916 building, which had just gone through an extensive restoration that needed to close the galleries in 2005. In 2009, a new East Wing was built, that is home to the contemporary, modern and impressionist artworks, that includes the famous blue period of Picasso's work, La Vie. The museum is separated into 15 divisions that contain contemporary art, Chinese art, photography, modern European art, Art of the Ancient Americas, prints, Oceania, African art, drawings, decorative art and design, European sculpture and paintings, medieval art, textiles and Islamic art and Greek and Roman art. Some of the masters that are included in the works are; van Gogh, Caravaggio, Renoir, El Greco, Picasso, Rubens, Monet, Poussin, Corot, Frans Hals, Church, Gerard David, Cole, Goya, J. M. W. Turner, Bellows, Dali, Matisse and Gaugin. From the works of the 20th century artists are; LeWitt, Warhol, Close, Pollock, Mangold, Christo, Tansey, Richter, Kossoff, Kiefer and Clemente.  The museum hosts a number of special events, lectures, excellent exhibitions, musical and film programs and their department of performing arts, music and film host the Panorama Film Series and the VIVA! and the Gala Around Town concert series that bring the creative juices of international artists of great fame to the city. The department of education makes programs for continuous lifelong learning from talks, studio classes and lectures that are outreach and community events like the Parade the Circle, Winter Lights Lantern Festival, Chalk Festival, Circle of Masks and more. Their marvelous distance learning programs include the Educator's Academy and Art to Go, which allow internet visitors to indulge themselves in great art programs that they might not have otherwise been able to achieve. The museum's Ingalls Library is considered to be one of the biggest art museum libraries in the nation containing 431,000 volumes. There are three extraordinary works housed in the collection; the Thinker by Rodin from 1902, which had been partially destroyed by the Weathermen in 1970, the Crucifixion of Saint Andrew by Caravaggio from 1607 and the Battle of the Nudes by Antonio del Pollaiuolo from the late 15th century.  The museum is in the process of growing much larger, which began in 2005, and is slated to be finished by 2012. At a cost of almost $10 million, the museum will be enlarged by 200,000 square feet, with more gallery space and enhanced visitor amenities. This includes more restrooms, more parking spaces, a bigger cafe and store, and a magnificent glass covered courtyard. The new museum will include two buildings that are architectural landmarks and one is quite historical. The 1916 Beaux arts building and the 1971 building by Marcel Breuer.

  • Cleveland Metroparks ZooCleveland Metroparks Zoo Cleveland, Ohio
    The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo in Cleveland, Ohio sits on 165 acres that has been divided into various regions named; Northern Trek, the Rainforest, the Primates, Cats and Aquatics House, African Savanna, and Australian Adventure. The zoo contains one of the biggest collection of primates in North America, with Monkey Island, made of concrete, where a big population of Colobus monkeys live in freedom, roaming at will, without any cages or bars. This zoo is an area of the Cleveland Metroparks system and was started in 1882, which makes it the seventh oldest zoo in the country and the most popular attraction in northeast Ohio, with 1,227,593 people coming here to visit the animals in 2007, that seem to thrive here. The zoo keepers believe that their new programs have caused this increase, which includes, "Boo at the Zoo", "Touch! awesome sharks and rays" and "Dinosaurs". When the zoo first opened on the present locale of the Cleveland Museum of Art, the city decided to move them in 1907 to where it is located today. During its early years, the zoo would only keep local animals, but in 1910, when they constructed the Monkey Island exhibit, sea lions pools and bear exhibit the visitor count began to increase. In 1940, they got their first elephant and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History took over control. During 1955 and 1975, when the management of the zoo changed hands to the Cleveland Metroparks, the zoo went through a large expansion and growth period that had to endure a flood. The primate and cat building went up in 1975, then the rainforest in 1992, then the wolf adventure in 1997, the Australian Adventure in 2000 and finally the Sarah Allison Steffee Center for Zoological Medicine in 2004.
