Art Academy of Cincinnati's annual Minumental Exhibition is about to open its 24th annual installment of one of smallest traditions on the Cincinnati arts calendar. No, we're not demeaning the show — it's small for a good reason. Work by Academy students, faculty and alumni must measure no more than 2 inches in any dimension, although it can be done in a variety of forms — painting, printmaking, collage, sculpture, mixed-media, fiber art, even photography. This year's show is curated by Jessica Flores, Cincinnati Art Museum's contemporary curator.
The opening reception takes place from 5-8 p.m. Friday at the Art Academy (1212 Jackson St., Over-the-Rhine). Sales begin at 5:30 p.m.; awards ceremony is at 7 p.m. Work is sold at reasonable prices although payment — cash, check, credit card — is required at time of sale. The show stays up through March 11.
