Current School Tours
collection tours are specifically aligned to Ohio Academic Content
Standards. We are in the process of
revising them to align with Common Core standards. All tours strive to build
awareness of creativity and innovation, and develop skills of critical
thinking, problem solving, communication and cultural awareness. There is not a charge for school tours; optional
workshop components are $7 per participant, except for the grant funded Art +
Core Connections programs, available at no cost to all schools.
Special Exhibition Tours
Call to Duty: World War Posters Recognizing memorial celebrations surrounding
the 100th anniversary of World War I (1914-1918), from July 4 –
October 4, 2015 more than 70 posters exploring themes of recruitment, funding,
home front efforts, service organizations and women in the war effort will be
exhibited. In conjunction, Tears of Stone: Photographs by Jane Alden
Stevens presents black and white photographs of various war memorial sites
American Sampler: Grandma Moses and the Handicraft
Tradition features more than 50 paintings by Grandma Moses, along with her
embroideries and crewelwork from November 21, 2015 – February 21, 2016. The exhibition examines the relationship
between Grandma Moses’ handiwork, historic depictions of landscapes, and her
paintings, a medium she did not work in until she was 78 years old, when
arthritis made it difficult for her to embroider. Quilts and samplers by other
American artists also are included.
