May 2022

Join us for a festive spring celebration!

The May Show was an annual juried exhibition of artworks sponsored every spring by the Cleveland Museum of Art. But in Cleveland, the May Show was something much more. It was the culmination, each year, of an infinitely creative arts community and its loyal patrons, brimming with uncontrollable enthusiasm. 

An impressive number of accomplished artists spread across northeastern Ohio could only be brought together by the gravitas of the annual May Show, the embodiment of the highest quality American contemporary arts scene. 

WOLFS pays homage to this Cleveland institution, last held in 1993, with a fun exhibition of striking works each chosen and exhibited at one of the many May Shows over the decades of the show's celebrated existence.
