CLEVELAND, OHIO
TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2019

Join with us as we travel to CLEVELAND, OHIO to experience the CLEVELAND MUSEUM OF ART.  Renowned for the quality and breadth of its collection, the museum offers almost 45,000 objects and spans 6,000 years of achievement in the arts.  It is one of the top comprehensive art museums in the country.   Our group will have a docent-led tour of the museum which will last approximately one hour. 

You may enjoy lunch at your leisure in the PROVENANCE CAFΙ.  Each passenger will be provided with a fifteen-dollar ($15.00) voucher towards their meal.  The cafι offers a variety of salads, soups and sandwiches or pizza. 

After lunch you may browse the museum at your own pace, but the following exhibit is a must.   You won't want to miss…..SHINTO: DISCOVERY OF THE DIVINE IN JAPANESE ART which is included in the cost of this trip. The worship of deities called kami has been a central feature of Japanese culture for many centuries and a driving force behind much of Japanese visual art.   Shinto or "the way of the gods" exhibits works exemplifying kami worship from the Heian period (794-1185) and through the Edo period (1615-1868).  You will see costumes worn in dances and theater performances at shrines.  View paintings of medieval pilgrimage routes and images of kami and Buddhist deities.  Take the time to experience this exhibit.  It is fascinating and worth your time!!!!
