wow -  so does anyone know who the anonymous donor is? or would like to take a guess?!

"The acquisition, paid for partly by an anonymous donor, includes 95 works, among them a portrait from an album in the collection of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, who was responsible for the building of the Taj Mahal."

This is a vast improvement over the current CMA maintenance shed that is so out of place in Rockefeller Park.  Love how it's now hidden and the park will continue uninterrupted in this area.

CLEVELAND, Ohio - A new maintenance building for the Cleveland Museum of Art may sound like a small and unglamorous project, but it's also a prelude to improvements on museum-controlled land along Doan Brook in the city's beloved Rockefeller Park.

The museum has announced it will add a new, $2 million maintenance facility alongside its new West Wing and demolish an aging and ugly maintenance building it now uses along Doan Brook east of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.

After the new facility is finished at the end of the year, the museum will embark on fresh landscaping for the site occupied by the older building, a 7.5-acre swath of land along the brook, downhill and west of the museum.

CLEVELAND, Ohio The Cleveland Museum of Art announced Saturday at its sold-out "CMA X 100" Centennial Celebration that it completed the historic $320 million capital campaign that fully paid for its acclaimed expansion and renovation built in 2005-13.

"I am absolutely thrilled,'' museum director William Griswold said Friday in an interview. "This is the largest campaign of its kind in the state of Ohio. It is a development about which we are hugely, hugely excited."

That number absolutely boggles my mind. THIS is the sort of stuff I want people to hear about when they learn about Cleveland.

The Art Museum has completed a major renovation of its ArtLens Gallery (encompassing what was formerly known as Gallery One, Studio Play, and the Collection Wall) with new touchless interactive experiences. Read more on the museum's website:  http://www.clevelandart.org/artlens-gallery/about.
