Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums

Welcome to Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums, Ohio Chapter

Patrons Tour Cleveland Museum of Art
Vincent Van Gogh "Repetitions" Exhibit

Members of the Ohio Chapter of the Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums visited The Cleveland Museum of Art on March 19, 2014 to view the masterpieces of  Vincent Van Gogh exhibition “Repetitions”. The exhibit is sponsored by the CMA and The Phillips Collection. They joined together to develop this ground-breaking exhibition that presents new insights into the art of Vincent Van Gogh through a study of his “repetitions,” a term the artist used to describe a distinctive genre of works in his oeuvre. The exhibition will be open until Sunday, May 25, 2014. To see photos of the group's post-event party, follow this LINK.
