A new show at the Cleveland Art Institute is going to be a lot more like an art exhibit: You can get a ticket online, but you’re not allowed to take pictures, and there’s no way to sit down.
The show, titled “The Art of Life,” features dozens of sculptures that are meant to illustrate life in various aspects, such as how a person might react to a drug.
There are also portraits of artists, as well as sculptures of animals, birds, insects and plants.
“This is a work of art, it’s a work that has been created, and the artist has said that the goal is to make the viewer realize that there are more things than just art,” said James Baugh, the institute’s executive director.
The institute will hold an online preview of the show on Feb. 16.
There are many ways to get into the show, including the Art of Change app that is available for $8.
There’s also an interactive exhibition map and interactive guide, and you can buy tickets online.
Tickets for the show are $12 for adults and $5 for students.
They can be purchased at the museum’s main doors, the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Cleveland Botanic Garden.
