Winter is Museum Weather in Cleveland
This winter, visit some of Cleveland’s own nationally-recognized museums. Come in from the cold and check out some events:
"The Beatles: Get Back to Let It Be” Exhibit Closing Soon and Check Out “Holla If Ya Hear Me,” Hip Hop at 50
Fan favorite “The Beatles: Get Back to Let It Be” exhibit is almost ending! This immersive complement to Peter Jackson’s “The Beatles: Get Back” docuseries is only open through the end of 2023 after a nearly two-year run. Plan your visit now to see our most popular special exhibit before it’s gone!
Also on display: “Holla If Ya Hear Me.” Don’t miss your chance to see where hip hop began – in 1973 at the party that never ended, 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in New York City. Jay-Z, Grandmaster Flash, Chuck D, Salt N Pepa, The Notorious B.I.G., Queen Latifah and many more are featured in the newest, most in-depth exhibition of hip-hop currently running today. From handwritten lyrics to the earliest gear used to create a hip-hop beat; from moguls to social issues; from East coast to West coast and everything in between.
At a time when the world was undergoing massive social and economic changes: beats, rhymes, movement, and art all combined to form what became known to the world as hip-hop, a genre that in its five decades of existence has transformed itself and our culture at large.

Degas and the Laundress: Women, Work, and Impressionism
Through Sunday, 01/14/2024
This groundbreaking exhibition is the first to explore Impressionist artist Edgar Degas’s representations of Parisian laundresses. These working-class women were a visible presence in the city, washing and ironing in shops open to the street or carrying heavy baskets of clothing. Their job was among the most difficult and poorly paid at the time, forcing some laundresses to supplement their income through sex work. The industry fascinated Degas throughout his long career, beginning in the 1850s and continuing until his final decade of work. He created about 30 depictions of laundresses, a selection of which is united for the first time in this exhibition. The artworks from this series—revolutionary in their emphasis on women’s work, the strenuousness of such labor, and social class—were featured in Degas’s earliest and most significant exhibitions, where they were praised by critics as epitomizing modernity.
Degas and the Laundress contextualizes these works with paintings, drawings, and prints of the same subject by the artist’s contemporaries—including Gustave Caillebotte, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec—as well as painters that he influenced and was influenced by, from Honoré Daumier to Pablo Picasso. It also presents ephemera, such as posters, photographs, and books, that reveals the widespread interest that Parisians of all social classes had in the topic of laundresses during the late 1800s.
The exhibition is accompanied by an interdisciplinary, richly illustrated publication featuring thematic essays by scholars of art history, literature, and history.
