Transformer Station

The Cleveland Museum of Art at Transformer Station presents significant new contemporary art projects, programming exhibitions and performing arts events at the venue on an annual basis. The Transformer Station, located in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood on the city’s west side, is a place for the museum to uncover new opportunities, take risks and explore new ideas and new media. 

In collaboration with the Fred and Laura Ruth Bidwell Foundation.

Current contemporary art programs featured at CMA at Transformer Station include: 

Dana Schutz: Eating Atom Bombs debuts a new series of paintings by Schutz. Created mostly in the past year, the works reflect the turbulent political atmosphere experienced in the United States in the wake of the 2016 election. Though our society may seem more divided than ever, the exhibition suggests that this uncertainty may be what unites us. In the words of the artist, “Many of the paintings depict dystopic scenes of conflict and shame. Subjects conceal and reveal themselves, trying to hold themselves together as well as the picture.”
