There’s Still Hope

As the nation observes Black History Month, Beyond Emancipation acknowledges that sometimes it’s tough to keep hope alive. But, even more, the show celebrates the fact that hope has always been there and always will be.   

Cafes Inside CAM, Taft Offer Tasty Treasures

0 Comments · Tuesday, January 24, 2012
These two museums don’t just have wonderful art — they also both have fantastic cafés. I recently undertook a mission to dine at both: CAM’s Terrace Café and the Lindner Family Café at the Taft Museum. I decided that I wouldn’t just eat at the cafés — I would also see what treasures the museums had to offer.   

Potent Potential

Good news from City Hall? Yes, actually. City Council has voted to re-instate and improve a long-established program providing grants to individual artists, which was cut for budgetary reasons in 2009.   

'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.

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.

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

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 1, 2009
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.
