Congratulations to Tricia Munson! She won a pair of tickets to the Improv for letting us know that Romie spent her morning at Wade Oval.

Keep watching for Summer of CMA contests and Romie sightings and stay tuned for more prizes and fun as we continue our celebration of the opening of the new East Wing of the Cleveland Museum of Art!

So, did you see her? 

On a brief sabattical from the Cleveland Museum of Art‘s new East Wing for a few hours, Romie decided to do lunch at a downtown location yesterday.  Here she is, pictured with her good friend Katie.  Provide us with a comment with your best guess of where this lunch took place today, and you’ll win tickets to a Lake Erie Crushers game. 

Stay tuned to find out where Romie will pop up next and to win prizes all summer long with the Summer of CMA!

Good luck!

Have You Seen It?

Little “Romie” has been out and about the city, enjoying the beautiful summer weather.  She normally is a homebody, and calls the new East Wing of the Cleveland Museum of Art home.  But she knows all about the Summer of CMA, and has big plans to see everything the city has to offer.

She’s been keeping it on the “down-low,” but tomorrow she’s going to be lunching at a busy location in downtown Cleveland, so be on the lookout!  If you spot her, snap her and submit to this blog, you’ll be eligible to win a pair of tickets to see the Lake Erie Crushers.

Make your submissions by noon Thursday, June 25.  We’ll draw two winners after noon and let you know if you’re one of the lucky winners!

Good luck!

Well, it’s finally here!  The Summer of CMA.  All summer long we’ll be celebrating the opening of the glorious new East Wing of the Cleveland Museum of Art with our own online contest, “Have You Seen It?”

We’ll be taking our good friend, Renoir’s Romaine Lacaux all over the city this summer. That’s her featured at the top of this blog.  When you see this framed work of art at your local Starbucks, an Indians game or somewhere on the Circle, take a snap of it and post a comment on this blog, or email  your image directly to us at  You can also post it to Facebook and Flickr with the tag: cmahaveyouseenit.  You can follow her through Twitter, too, at Summer of CMA.

We’ll be holding special contests and giving away prizes all summer long to the lucky winners!  Join the fun, visit the new East Wing and support art in your community with the Summer of CMA.

Have You Seen It? She’s out there…

Yesterday’s winner:

Robert Rose 

Each day of the contest, we’ll feature a different artists’ work and ask you to post your comments with what you think is the correct answer.
