Friends of Treasures of Heaven

Treasures of Heaven: Saints, Relics, and Devotion in Medieval Europe February 13, 2011 - May 08, 2011

This ground-breaking exhibition is the first time American audiences will have the opportunity to see 90-100 extraordinary works of Medieval art, including metal work, paintings, sculptures and illuminated manuscripts, drawn from public collections and church treasuries across the United States and Europe. A partnership between the Cleveland Museum of Art, the British Museum and the Walters, Treasures of Heaven promises to be a powerful visual examination of the role of relics and reliquaries in Christian faith from late Antiquity until the Reformation.

We would like to thank the sponsors of the Treasures of Heaven exhibition for their continued generosity. This project received important early support through planning grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. Magnanimous gifts from Paul Ruddock and an anonymous benefactor made the catalogue possible.

We acknowledge with gratitude the support of Marilyn and George Pedersen and the Sheridan Foundation which, together with additional implementation funds from the Kress Foundation, a Museum for America grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts made the exhibition possible. Additional support is provided by an anonymous donor, Ellen and Ed Bernard, Ann K. Clapp, Mary Jo and Ted Wiese, Stanley Mazaroff and Nancy L. Dorman, and the Associated Sulpicians of the United States.
