The Cleveland Museum of Art     
11150 East Blvd, Cleveland, Ohio 44106    View Map

September 11, 2019 6 PM to 8 PM

Join CAS in the Julia and Larry Pollock Focus Gallery for a special, members only tour of "Cai Guo-Qiang: Cuyahoga River Lightning", led by Clarissa von Spee, Chair of Asian Art and James and Donna Reid Curator of Chinese Art at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Following the tour, join fellow CAS members for casual drinks at Provenance.

RSVP is required for this event. Participation will be limited to the first 30 members who register.

"Cai Guo-Qiang: Cuyahoga River Lightning" features three monumental gunpowder works by Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang (born 1957), known for his explosion events, gunpowder paintings, and installations, all using environmentally friendly material.

While "Cuyahoga River Lightning: Drawing for the Cleveland Museum of Art" (2018) was created especially for the exhibition, the other two exhibited works in monochrome and polychrome gunpowder illustrate the artist’s reflections on the state of our planet, wildlife, and the world’s diminishing natural reserves of fresh water.

The Cleveland Museum of Art is pleased to present this exhibition as part of , a citywide commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the last Cuyahoga River fire and celebration of the progress made toward clean water for all.
