(Cleveland) - The Cleveland Museum of Art gave way to another art form this weekend, closing Sunday to allow filming for a Hollywood movie.

The crew for "Captain America: The Winter's Soldier" has spent weeks filming in the Cleveland area, including a two-week highway shutdown that angered commuters and jammed alternate routes.

Filming will continued Sunday and Monday at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The museum will reopen Tuesday. It is traditionally closed Mondays.

The museum hasn't disclosed how much rent they're charging the film studio.

The deal could help the museum pay for a massive $350 million expansion and renovation due to be finished later this year.

Captain America stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford.
