See you there!


Romie is hitting the road in a big way today–driving across country all the way to Denver with her idol and look-alike, Sara H.  We hear Baby T-Rex isn’t allowed to leave Cleveland without his mommy’s permission.  Too bad.  Guess he’ll have to settle for Bob Evans.

Now if you are out there lurking on Twitter, our Summer of CMA blog or on Facebook, and you happen to see her while you are out on the trail, please let us know.  Better yet, snap a vaca pic of Romie and send it to us at haveyouseenit@clevelandart org. We’ll post it, credit you and say lots of nice things about you and your photo 🙂

She’ll be back home this coming Monday, so it isn’t a grand holiday by any means, just a chance to get out and see the countryside before it’s time for back-to-school.

There are special prizes reserved for sightings along the way.  So if you see her, snap her and send her to us at and you’ll be entered to win something  fabulous.

Well, based on what we’ve heard, we’re guessing Romie is a little more popular than we imagined!  But just think how Romie felt when Baby T-Rex decided it was time to break out of his prehistoric nap to travel over to Bob Evans and enjoy a country scramble or two?   Maybe we should get a mascot reunion together before the summer is over. 

Oh well, Romie hopes she sees him out on the road either way! 

As a matter of fact, she’s heading back out tomorrow evening, hitting a popular gathering place not too far from home.

Track her or spot her, then tell us where you saw her.  Better yet, send a pic of Romie at this verdant location where closed plane curves converge once a week during the summer, and you’ll be entered to win yet another chance at a $25 gift certificate to Melt in Lakewood.  You can send your entry to our email address at, or comment to this blog. 

You could even bring Baby T-Rex along for a sandwich–if he’s allowed out at night 🙂

Good luck!

Sorry folks, this week’s sightings did not yield a winner! Eat some carrots, pump up that vitamin A, and keep your eyes peeled!  She’s still out there! 

We’ll be offering the gift certificate to Melt to another lucky winner Tuesday. 

Meanwhile, did you catch Romie at the zoo?  She was out with her buds this past week  checking out the wildest of wildlife in Cleveland at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.   She had a great time, but missed all of you!  As you can see, she spent her day getting a little prehistoric with the dinosaurs.

She’ll be out on the town again this weekend, too.  If you do see her, please send us a comment or a pic!  We’ll be entering your submissions this weekend into the grand prize drawing when she wraps up her travels in September.  No clues here, just email us at or post your comment to this blog and you’re good to go.  The grand prize will be just as gooey, too!

Have a great weekend, let us know if you see Romie out and about in your neighborhood, and be sure to drop into the blog on Monday for your Tuesday contest clue!

Have you seen her?

Renoir‘s Romaine Lacaux–Romie–is on the road again tomorrow.  She’ll be out on the near west side, and here’s a clue:  she takes her coffee with cream and sugar, and enjoys taking in the view of Flower Child.

If you see her just post a comment to this blog and you’ll be entered to win a $25 gift certificate good towards merchandise at the Cleveland Museum of Art‘s Museum Store.  It’s all part of the Summer of CMA celebration taking place throughout the summer, lots of prizes, special events and fun all season long!

Tomorrow’s contest winner will be drawn Thursday, July 2.

Good luck!

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!
