More than 4,000 artworks from the Cleveland Museum of Art’s permanent collection are on view in the galleries. However, many works remain in storage for various reasons: some are light sensitive, some have condition issues, some have contested attributions, or others simply do not fit into the narratives or finite spaces of the galleries. Stories from Storage reveals approximately 300 works of art from storage. Visitors will encounter 20 stories—told by the museum’s 17 curators, as well as the director and the chief curator—that highlight works seldom on view, spanning the museum’s encyclopedic collection, from the ancient world to today. The unifying thread is the glimpse into storage that each story provides.
