Time-travel to medieval Central Europe for the Cleveland Museum of Art's newest weapons exhibit, Arms and Armor From Imperial Austria, which is on display through the beginning of June. The collection dates from between 1500 and 1650, and comes from the Austrian state of Styria, which Ottoman Turks tried to conquer back in the day. The battlewear includes everything from a jouster's shield and a nobleman's three-quarter armorplate to iron-and-leather saddle and stirrups made in 1530. "It will capture the romance and chivalry of the subject of armor, with protection of the weak by the strong. It presents a slice of Austrian history at its most compelling phase — the Renaissance — during which the arts and artistic patronage were flourishing," says Stephen Fliegel, the museum's medieval-art curator. "The exhibition will be breathtaking, with the armor presented as sculpture in steel." The display is on view between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. Wednesdays, through Sunday, June 1, at the Cleveland Museum of Art, 11150 East Boulevard. Admission is $15 ($10 for kids). Call 216-421-7350 or visit www.clevelandart.org.
Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Wednesdays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Starts: Feb. 24. Continues through June 1, 2008
