Gallery One
Come experience what everybody’s talking about: the Cleveland Museum of Art’s new Gallery One. This innovative gallery blends art, technology, and interpretation to inspire you to explore the museum’s permanent collection. Gallery One offers something for everyone – from those who are having their first art museum experience to frequent visitors.

Inside the gallery, you’ll have a chance to see real works of art from the museum’s collection, including masterpieces by Pablo Picasso, Auguste Rodin, Viktor Schreckengost, Giovanni Panini, and Chuck Close. Hands-on and technology-based activities give you the chance to explore these works of art like never before. Through fun games and facts, you’ll learn how works of art are made, where they come from, and why they are produced.

This revolutionary space also features the largest multi-touch microtile screen in the United States, which displays images of over 4,100 objects from the museum’s world-renowned permanent collection. This 40-foot Collection Wall allows you to shape your own tours of the museum and to discover the full breadth of the collections on view throughout the museum’s galleries.

Enhance your visit to the museum further by using ArtLens, the museum’s new app for iPad, iPhone, and Android. Before, during, or after your visit, you can enjoy over nine hours of additional multimedia content, including audio tour segments, videos, and additional contextual information. Worried about getting lost in the galleries? The interactive map in ArtLens uses iBeacon technology to help guide your way and find works of art with additional content nearby. In an unprecedented combination of technology interfaces, iOS and Android devices can be docked at the Collection Wall, where visitors are able to save objects from the wall to their device, creating a list of favorites. Favorites can then be shared via social media or used to create a custom tour. This feature allows visitors to “walk” the museum, both physically and virtually from off site. Taken together, this suite of new interfaces transforms the visitor experience by extending the access and creative agency of each individual visitor.


History and Mission
The Cleveland Museum of Art was founded in 1913 “for the benefit of all the people forever.” We strive to help the broadest possible audience understand and engage with the world’s great art while honoring the highest aesthetic, intellectual, and professional standards.

We are proud to be one of the world’s most distinguished comprehensive art museums and one of northeastern Ohio’s principal civic and cultural institutions.

Founding
The museum opened on June 6, 1916 after many years of planning. Its creation was made possible by Cleveland industrialists Hinman B. Hurlbut, John Huntington, and Horace Kelley, all of whom bequeathed money specifically for an art museum, as well as by Jeptha H. Wade II, whose Wade Park property was donated for the site. The endowments established by these founders continue to support the museum. The original neoclassic building of white Georgian marble was designed by the Cleveland firm of Hubbell & Benes and was constructed at a cost of $1.25 million. Located north of the Wade Lagoon, it forms the focus of the city’s Fine Arts Garden.
