Celebrate Valentine’s Day Weekend with the Cleveland Museum of Art

The Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) invites you to celebrate love in all its forms from Friday, February 11, to Sunday, February 13. Explore the galleries with your loved one and enjoy a wonderful slate of exhibitions, including the thought-provoking exhibition Picturing Motherhood Now or the recently opened free exhibition Women in Print. Grab lunch in the museum’s Ames Family Atrium, Cleveland’s largest free interior public space, and purchase a sweet treat in Provenance Café. Other highlights include a love-inspired self-guided collection tour via the ArtLens App, which can be accessed on- and off-site. 

You may want to bring your camera to capture the magic of your visit with couples’ selfies in front of Jacques-Louis David’s Cupid and Psyche or Felix Gonzalez-Torres’s Untitled. When you bundle up for a stroll through the Fine Arts Garden, be sure to see The Thinker sprinkled with snowflakes and Wade Lagoon’s frozen, shimmering surface.
