WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

A 'Superunknown' Impulse Binds Neo-Folk Artists

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 13, 2013
Northside’s Thunder-Sky, Inc. wrestles with the term “outsider” art. Though it’s a marketable label, it can heap sometimes-false assumptions upon artists. They’re presumed to be uneducated, untrained, isolated, developmentally disabled and/or indifferent to profit. Thunder-Sky, Inc. co-founders Keith Banner and Bill Ross prefer “unconventional” to describe the works.

If I were to recommend just one show at a regional art museum right now, it would be the Matisse, Life in Color: Masterworks from the Baltimore Museum of Art exhibition at the Indianapolis Museum of Art through Jan. 12, 2014.

1 Comment · Wednesday, October 30, 2013
On the first Wednesday of each month, a group of special visitors gathers in one of three participating Cincinnati museums for a tour designed expressly for them. The group includes people whose memories are fragile in the extreme and their guests, the family members or others who accompany them.  

Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize Is a Grand Experiment

1 Comment · Wednesday, October 23, 2013
Grand Rapids, a city of less than 200,000 people in western Michigan, isn’t quite ready to be considered one of the Midwest’s great art centers; Cleveland, Chicago and Detroit’s art museums are not yet in danger of being eclipsed by Grand Rapids. But with its annual ArtPrize — a festival-like art exhibition and competition that occurs in late September and early October — it has come up with a citywide visual-arts event like no other in the way it’s captured the public imagination.  

Early American Art Is 'Telling Tales' at the Taft

In 1850, when Robert S. Duncanson was painting landscapes on the hallways of what is now the Taft Museum of Art, art itself had a somewhat different place in popular culture than it has today. Duncanson’s landscapes are idealized scenes of nature and, as such, are considered uplifting.  

Photographic Memories

'Reverberation' exhibit showcases evocative live music photography during MidPoint

Might a picture be worth a thousand songs? It’s possible that a photograph, as much as an MP3 player full of tunes or a head full of memories, is the best way to recall attending a concert by a favorite act. Not just something shot far from the stage on your shaky iPhone, but rather the kind of image that an inspired photographer — with media access and lots of skill — can take up close.  

Far-Reaching Exhibit 'Vessels' Is More than Just Bowls

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 4, 2013
As home to Vessels: All the Eyes Can Hold, Kennedy Heights Arts Center is a vessel itself, brimming with nearly 100 works representing 57 artists. Co-curator Lynn Conaway saw to it that this wouldn’t be a show of only stoneware pots, which is an easy place to go when the theme is “vessels,” so she asked artists to think outside the bowl.   

The Rise (and Return) of Digital Movie Houses

This fall, the Cincinnati region gets two foundational film creations — a brand new multiplex (and the introduction of a new chain) and a renovation/upgrade to an existing player.  

Tides of War Touch Home

The Lloyd Library and Museum may not be on your accustomed arts radar but its extraordinary current exhibition could put it there. Wounded Home reflects the ghastly physical toll war has on its participants as well as its psychological toll on them and their families.   

Works on Paper Help Make Memories Last

1 Comment · Wednesday, July 31, 2013
There’s something special about ideas committed to paper. While our thumbs rest from texting, our fingertips appreciate the tactile sensation of a physical page. As we create and study images, our brains connect moments from our past, forming a trail.
