Thoughts on Reopening the Museum #WelcomeBackCMA | by Cleveland Museum of Art | CMA Thinker | Jul, 2020

After being closed for more than three months beginning March 14 to meet COVID-19 public health guidelines, the Cleveland Museum of Art reopened June 30, 2020. The museum is limiting daily visitation initially, and on the first day of a new era, 500 people from across the Cleveland area came to enjoy a safe and inspiring public space.They reserved free, timed tickets and arrived in a colorful variety of masks so that they could be among the first visitors to see collection favorites, 20 works from the recent Keithley collection gift now on display, and the completely reimagined British galleries. Also, all special exhibitions that were on view when the CMA locked its doors reopened with extended end dates, to ensure additional time for people to see these once-in-a-lifetime installations.What follows is a photo essay and some observations chronicling a historic day for the CMA.All images courtesy Scott Shaw Photography for the Cleveland Museum of Art.
