Cleveland Hosts 'Arms & Armor' Exhibition

If you are anywhere near northeast Ohio between now and June, you might be interested in an exhibition of European arms and armor.

The Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) is presenting a varied selection of some of the finest surviving examples of European arms and armor in an exhibit called, "Arms and Armor from Imperial Austria," The program will be on view February 24 through June 1, 2008 at CMA. Organizers say this exhibition is the museum's first to look at a slice of history in Europe at the height of the Renaissance, through the subject of arms and armor, and its role in a rural society on the border of the Ottoman Empire.

Admission is $15. Worth a trip to Ohio's North Coast if you ask me.
