Cleveland Museum of Art swaps work in ‘Shinto’ exhibition
New works will be added today to the “Shinto: Discovery of the Divine in Japanese Art” exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
The international loan exhibition is exclusive to Cleveland and is presented by the CMA with cooperation from the Nara National Museum.
It includes calligraphy, painting, sculpture, costume and decorative arts assembled from Japanese and American museums, Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples. The artworks are an expression of the everyday engagement of people with divinities.
It includes treasures never before seen outside Japan and a significant number of works designated as Important Cultural Properties by the Japanese government. Because of this and the light sensitivity of other works on view, the exhibition has two rotations.
About half of the works that were included when the show opened April 9 have been replaced with new items that will remain on display through June 30 at the museum, 11150 East Blvd. Tickets for “Shinto” are $1 for adults, $8 for senior citizens and college students, $5 for children ages 6 to 17 and free for children 5 and younger. Those who purchased tickets for the first rotation of the exhibition can bring those tickets in for free re-admission to the second rotation.
