'Getting Outside of Myself'

How ArtWorks trains the next generation of local artists

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 18, 2009
I’ve always been able to find art in Cincinnati. From seeing the paintings created by an art class at SCPA, where I’m currently a senior, to being inspired by exhibits at the Cincinnati Art Museum or the Contemporary Arts Center, it’s been fairly easy to nourish my passion for art in my hometown.   

On, Wisconsin!: Learning from the Badger State's Art Museums

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 23, 2009
A recent trip to Wisconsin reaffirmed for me the exciting correctness of the Cincinnati Art Museum’s efforts to build collections in Folk/Outsider Art and Contemporary Crafts. This year, the museum has displayed work from two new collections — Chicago collector Robert Lewis’ Outsider Art and Cincinnati collectors of Contemporary Craft Nancy and David Wolf.

Artist Don Lambert, who wants his work to reach a wide public, is a perfect choice as the inaugural winner of the Cincinnati Art Museum’s new 4th Floor Award.

Last week, Cincinnati Art Museum filled us in on the upcoming season and other subjects. We’ve already published the museum’s Fall schedule, so I’m going to bring up some of the other information they shared with us. While the recession has definitely had an impact, the museum continues to move forward.  

Art Institute of Chicago's Modern Wing: Beautiful and Challenging

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 15, 2009
Over the July 4 weekend, I visited the Midwest’s hottest visual-arts destination this summer — the Art Institute of Chicago’s new Renzo Piano-designed Modern Wing, which opened in May. In Chicago, a town that takes architecture very seriously, the building is being hailed as a masterpiece. Although it’s three stories high, it feels light, intimate and low to the ground, the result of using lots of glass, accented by steel mullion strips, to give the limestone-cladded facade an open and inviting spirit.   

CAM's Craft Exhibition Will Bowl You Over

Cincinnati Art Museum has launched so many new exhibitions this summer — large and small — that it's hard to keep up with them all. But 'Outside the Ordinary: Contemporary Art in Glass, Wood and Ceramics' from the Wolf Collection is a don't-miss-it stunner.

People from the Midwest already know how liberal Californians are — we hear all about their medical marijuana and interracial relationships on the news. But San Francisco is about to take it to the next level this fall with the strictest recycling rules this side of the Atlantic.

After a long time renting space in Hyde Park, Sylvia Rombis has invested $1 million in building and owning the new Malton Gallery, an airy and modernist building on Edwards Road across from the Rookwood Commons shopping/office complex. It opened this month, brightening a busy street to immediately become one of the most impressive-looking stand-alone galleries in the city, with its glass-and-metal exterior promising a new experience to passersby.  

The Grand Visions of Garry Winogrand

Cincinnati Art Museum highlights Winogrand's photography

‘Garry Winogrand would move fast through the streets, see things happening, maybe across an intersection, would move to that area, firing off his Leica, the wide-angle lens essentially pre-focused, moving with the camera, the energy, the kineticism of the street coming through.”  

Check Out Our Own Exhibits, Then Go Regional

Art lovers have a whole world at their fingertips

For art-museum lovers, one of the best things about hot summers in Cincinnati is the proximity to nearby cities whose museums and public galleries have exhibitions. This makes shows in Dayton, Columbus, Louisville, Lexington and Indianapolis easily reachable. But before we set off on a two-hour drive to see another city’s work, let’s look at the shows local institutions have planned for the summer. Then we’ll hit the road.
