    Mother’s Day Activities

Eyewitness Views: Making History in Eighteenth-Century Europe
On view through May 20
FREE admission for mom
Hurry! Final weeks
View outstanding masterworks by revered artists who recorded some of the most newsworthy events and impressive spectacles of 18th-century Europe. Whether depicting a triumphal procession, a joyous celebration or the catastrophic eruption of a volcano, the vibrant, colorful and often monumental paintings in Eyewitness Views re-create what it was like to witness these magnificent occasions.

Tickets: Adults $12, seniors and college students $10, children 6–17 and member guests $6, children 5 and under and CMA members free

Tiffany and Fabergé Galleries
Galleries 209 and 211
Visit the Tiffany and Fabergé galleries to see the museum’s superb collections of works by American designer Louis Comfort Tiffany and his Russian counterpart, Peter Carl Fabergé. The newly redesigned galleries position the artists’ works so they face one another more directly: Fabergé heralding traditional, historicist designs, and Tiffany trumpeting the modern notes of the Art Nouveau. The galleries are named in honor of the Ruth and Charles Maurer Family and the Cara and Howard Stirn Family, respectively.
