Exhibitions at the Julia and Larry Pollock Gallery

The Art Collection team organizes several temporary thematic exhibitions each year for the Julia and Larry Pollock Gallery, located between the Q and G buildings on main campus.

Current Exhibition

Celebrating Black History Month: Selections from the Cleveland Clinic Collection: To honor and celebrate Black History Month, this exhibition features a small fraction of African and African diaspora artists in the Cleveland Clinic Art Collection. This selection includes new acquisitions and old favorites in a variety of mediums and genres. Portraiture has been a longstanding tradition in African and African diasporic art. 

Kehinde Wiley, Zanele Muholi, Samuel Fosso, Otto Neals, Andrea Chung and Dexter Davis use the human figure to explore nuances of their personal experiences. Prints by Mary Lee Bendolph and Odili Donald Odita reveal how abstraction can be linked to cultural heritage. Ebony Patterson, Alison Saar, Kahlil Robert Irving, Samuel Levi Jones and Althea Murphy-Price utilize non-art materials to underscore the cultural weight that everyday objects can carry.

The artwork on view speaks to the sustained commitment of Cleveland Clinic's Art Collection to represent and reflect the diversity of patients and caregivers. Following this exhibition, these works will go on view in locations throughout Cleveland Clinic, where they will continue to provide inspiration and foster a sense of belonging year-round.

Diverse Visions/Diverse Voices: Hispanic Artists at Cleveland Clinic

September 15, 2023 – January 31, 2024

Diverse Visions/Diverse Voices: Hispanic Artists at Cleveland Clinic: Coinciding with Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 – October 15), this exhibition of art from Cleveland Clinic’s Art Collection puts the diversity of Hispanic and Latino culture on vivid display. Hispanic and Latino are pan-ethnic terms that are generally used to describe people with links to Latin American cultures found in the Caribbean, North, Central, and South America—an area with 34 countries and more than 448 spoken languages.

Just as Hispanic people are diverse, so is their art. The artists in this exhibition — a small sampling of Hispanic artists in the collection — use a variety of mediums and genres to explore social and aesthetic concerns. Themes like mapping, architecture, portraiture and abstraction are used to examine colonialism, migration and identity and to celebrate the richness of Hispanic heritage.


Located between the first floors of Glickman Tower (Q Building) and G Building, Julia and Larry Pollock Gallery is free and always open to the public. To find directions to the gallery, please use our interactive map for step-by-step directions, or access a main campus map.
