CLEVELAND, OH.- A summer filled with events, activities and speakers suitable for all ages celebrates the opening of the new East Wing at the Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA). On June 27, 2009, the Cleveland Museum of Art will open to the public the first of three new wings designed by architect Rafael Viñoly, marking a major milestone in the museum’s renovation and expansion project. The 139,200-square-foot East Wing connects CMA’s original 1916 Beaux-Arts building, designed by Hubbell and Benes, and the 1971 addition by Marcel Breuer, and creates new spaces for the presentation and conservation of one of the nation’s leading encyclopedic collections.

CMA’s renowned collections of 19th century European sculpture, painting, and decorative arts, modern and contemporary art, and photography will return to public view for the first time since the museum closed its galleries in 2005. The phased renovation and expansion of the facility will, when it is completed in 2012, add an additional 200,000 square feet, including two more wings and a soaring glass-enclosed atrium at the center of the new complex that will serve as an inspiring civic space for the benefit of the entire community.

A complete list of times, dates and locations celebrating the East Wing Opening throughout the summer are listed below. For more information, call 1 (888) CMA-0033 or go online to Friend or follow Summer of CMA on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. The opening of the East Wing is presented by National City Bank, now a part of PNC. Education programs are supported by Giant Eagle and Macy’s.
