Medieval treasures in Nashville until June 7, 2009

Residents of Nashville, Tennessee have the rare opportunity to view "some of the finest medieval art in the United States" when the Frist Center for the Visual Arts presents Medieval Treasures from the Cleveland Museum of Art now through June 7, 2009.

The collection is on loan to the museum during a renovation in Cleveland which included a complete restoration of the museum's famous Armour Court. The exhibit at the Frist Center also offers programs relating to the exhibit, a gallery guide, and a downloadable audio tour.

From the website:

Medieval Treasures offers an unprecedented opportunity to view the museum’s celebrated Early Christian, Byzantine, Western Medieval, and Early Renaissance works of art in Nashville before they return home to be installed in the renovated museum in Cleveland. The exhibition spans the history of Western art from the adoption of Christianity as the state religion of the Roman Empire in the fourth century to the Protestant Reformation in the sixteenth century.
