Best New Gallery 

Cleveland Museum of Art's East Wing

The East Wing galleries begin in the glass-walled jewel box that shows off the museum's Rodin sculptures, and it's hard to imagine a better space for them. Walk north, and you go forward in time through the dramatic evolution of European painting of the 19th and 20th centuries. Smooth traditional portraiture and landscapes give way to works where brush strokes matter. There are Monet water lilies and Degas dancers, Picasso's multiple perspectives. You wind up among the wild experiments by of Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner, sleek sculpture by Constantine Brancusi and a comically large tube of toothpaste by Claes Oldenburg. You'll also see a room dedicated to Cleveland artists — a first for one of our city's most important institutions. (11150 East Blvd., clemusart.com, 216.421.7340) Gill
