Cleveland's collection of world-class arts institutions would be a boon for a city of any size. Sorry, Milwaukee, you can't have it.

For nearly a century the Cleveland Museum of Art has served as one of the finest galleries in all the land, made better still by the soon-to-be-completed $260-million makeover and addition. Rubbing shoulders with the museum for the past 100 years has been the Cleveland Orchestra, which delights fine-music fans at home-base Severance Hall. Toss in PlayhouseSquare, the second-largest performing arts district in the country, Cleveland Public Theatre, Museum of Natural History, Cleveland International Film Festival, the Rock Hall, live-music clubs, and funky galleries too numerous to name, it is clear that art, indeed, lives here.
