Art Scavenger Hunt with Harvard Alumni

  • March 18, 2016
  • 6:30 PM

Join the Cleveland State University Alumni Association in partnership with the Harvard Alumni Club for an afternoon of art and adventure.

The Harvard Club of Northeast Ohio will present a multi-alumni-club art scavenger hunt at CMA on Friday, March 18, 2016 starting at 6:30 p.m., and local CSU alums are invited! All proceeds will go to provide college scholarships to outstanding graduating seniors in Cleveland public high schools. Winning students can use them at any college or university.

Using photos of tiny sections of art works in the CMA galleries as hints, teams will compete to identify them. A team is any group of one to four people who decide to work together.

The price is $15 for adults and kids 13 and older. Kids 12 and under are free.

We’ll meet at 6:30 p.m. in the amazing new Atrium. At 6:45 p.m. we’ll send you off to two seven-question hunts. The first will take place in the 1916 wing, where the Armor Court is. Then we will walk to the second hunt in the East Wing, where the Impressionists are.

As soon as you finish each hunt, turn in your entry immediately to our Harvard board member John Miller ‘68. He’ll be following you from one wing to the other carrying two big entry bags, one for each hunt. Make sure he marks what time you turn in your entry on your entry. The soonest turned-in perfect score team entry for each hunt wins a four-person prize. If you get really stumped, various other Harvard board members, one per art work, will be standing nearby them and will give you hints.

At 7:30, with the hunts completed, we’ll all meet back in the Atrium. While our board members figure out who won, everybody else can buy drinks and appetizers from the Museum’s bar. We can all hang out there until the Museum closes at 9 p.m.

Register here 

You will first need to register for the Harvard Club’s web site, because some of this information is needed to process your reservation and payment.

Then you will register for the scavenger hunt. Where it says “Special Instructions,” write in “Cleveland State,” so we can keep the total reservations for each college and university separate.

Then you will pay with your credit card. After you’ve paid, the site will automatically destroy your credit card information.

After you register and pay, do not sign off immediately! A new window will appear, asking you to print the names of everyone in your party. Then you can sign off. Following that, the system will immediately email you a confirmation that you paid.
