“I don’t know the people, but I like the way they look,” says longtime Cincinnati Post photojournalist Melvin Grier.  Grier is at Iris BookCafé, surveying black-and-white photos of local musicians. Some are national names, others up-and-comers. All were shot by fellow photographer Michael Wilson, who should be a national name but isn’t.

Cincinnati Art Museum Purchases Courttney Cooper Map

Museum adds Visionaries + Voices artist's work to permanent collection

Old embraced new in a powerful way when Cincinnati’s oldest art institution, the Cincinnati Art Museum, purchased a new piece from local, contemporary artist Courttney Cooper this week. "Cincinnati Map" is now part of the museum’s permanent collection and skillfully depicts the buildings, streets, and roadways that make our city one Cooper never tires of drawing. A piecemeal of 8.5-by-11-inch repurposed papers, "Cincinnati Map" is a Bic pen line rendition of downtown Cincinnati that Cooper worked on for a year and brought to life by memory alone. "Courttney Cooper is one of the most ambitious and compelling artists working in Cincinnati,“ says Matt Distel, CAM adjunct curator of contemporary art. “His work not only speaks to Cincinnati but also addresses more universal concepts about how people experience their environment.” Grown out of Northside’s Visionaries + Voices studio and gallery, "Cincinnati Map" was shown in Cooper’s first museum show at the Cincinnati Art Museum last year and will now be exhibited there as curatorial opportunities for it emerge.

The Slow Pleasures of Looking at Art

Art Museums, like any other civic institution, participate in lots of special “days” and other catchy events to get visitors. But Slow Art Day, which occurred April 12, was such a good idea — at least at Cincinnati Art Museum (CAM), where I participated — that it should be instituted on a regular basis.

Have you seen the emperor’s old clothes at the Taft Museum of Art? With apologies to Hans Christian Andersen’s cautionary tale of vanity, the naked truth remains that we’re judged by our dress.
