I nearly missed this one.
I paid so much attention to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame that I didn’t think to check if Cleveland had a contemporary art museum.
Thankfully, a little birdie told me to try.
The resemblance ended there.
Inside, I saw information tables, an art lecture in progress, and some folks conversing over coffee. It was so communal. Like being in someone’s living room.
After that, I climbed a zig-zagging staircase, gazed through design-y window cutouts, and made my way through the first exhibit. Rinse and repeat until I got to the top, where I soaked up the interior in its entirety.
For me, it was a holistic experience. The museum was a sculptural entity housing transient exhibits (moCa Cleveland is a non-collecting institution). It was art within and art throughout.
My only gripe was that I expected more square footage. It would’ve been nice to view one more exhibit, and admire the interior from an indoor cafe
That being said, I only had to give an email + zip code to get in 😉
