Beyond Angkor: Cambodian Sculpture from Banteay Chhmar
Museum Hours
Cleveland Museum of Art
11150 East Blvd.

The Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Gallery

At the turn of the 1200s, the Khmer Empire of Cambodia was one of the most powerful in the world. From 1181 to 1218, King Jayavarman VII ruled under the banner of Buddhism and expanded his dominions to include most of peninsular Southeast Asia. For centuries Angkor was the official capital, but Jayavarman VII built a second political and religious center about 68 miles northwest of Angkor at Banteay Chhmar, his "Second Citadel." This exhibition features an unprecedented loan from the National Museum of Cambodia of a section from the sculpted enclosure wall of the great royal temple at Banteay Chhmar. Intricately carved in low relief, the wall depicts a unique, larger-than-life image of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Ten-Armed Lokeshvara, surrounded by devotees. Complementing the loan of the bas-relief from Banteay Chhmar, works from the Cleveland Museum of Art's renowned collection of Cambodian art from the time of Jayavarman VII will be on view, contextualized by photographs of the site by Jaroslav Poncar and digital reconstructions by Olivier Cunin.

Thanks to the generosity of the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts of the Kingdom of Cambodia, visitors to the Cleveland Museum of Art have the opportunity to experience some of the grandeur of the temple at Banteay Chhmar. Beyond Angkor: Cambodian Sculpture from Banteay Chhmar is organized in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts of the Government of the Kingdom of Cambodia.

More recently, Sushko was accepted as a Fulbright Specialist, and invited to Ukraine to speak on film production and post production as well as screen the film as part of Fulbright's 25th Anniversary in Ukraine.

The Cleveland Orchestra’s 38th annual free concert in celebration of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. takes place at Severance Hall on Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. conducted by Music Director Franz Welser-Möst. The concert is free, however tickets are required. Information on how to request tickets is included below. This concert is sponsored by KeyBank and supported by a grant from the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation.

One of the highlights of the Orchestra’s 100th season is the Prometheus Project, an exploration of the myth of Prometheus, the daring Greek Titan who defied Zeus to bring the gift of fire on humanity. This gift is linked to the spark of creativity that has powered and inspired humanity, the belief in justice and goodness, the fight for right, and individual freedoms. Dr. King is a modern day Prometheus, and Music Director Franz-Welser Möst explores his life and legacy, and his dedication to the struggle for racial equality, through a program of music inspired by his spirit.

The January 14 program features classical selections by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, and Verdi, as well as traditional hymns and spirituals such as “Down by the Riverside,” “Precious Lord,” and “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” The Cleveland Orchestra is joined for this performance by: · Narrator James Pickens Jr., a Cleveland native who is best known as Dr. Richard Webber on Grey’s Anatomy and Deputy Director Alvin Kersh on The X-Files;
· Guest soloist Ryan Speedo Green, called “a show stopper” by The New York Times;
· The Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Chorus — an all-Cleveland community volunteer chorus — directed by William Henry Caldwell.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Concert is free to the community, however tickets are required. Due to the high demand for tickets — and to provide fair and equitable access to all — free tickets will be distributed via a lottery drawing, which may be entered by filling out a lottery form at www.clevelandorchestra.com, sending a postcard or letter to the Severance Hall Ticket Office, or by calling the Ticket Office.

Winners will be chosen at random on January 4, 2018, and winners will be mailed tickets at that date. One entry per household is permitted, with a limit of four tickets per entry. Phone entries can be made by calling the Severance Hall Ticket Office at 216-231-1111 during regular business hours.
