A hybrid of a boutique hotel, a fine dining restaurant and a museum, downtown Cincinnati’s 21c Museum Hotel is a jaw-dropping, sui generis masterpiece.   

‘NINE’ Is An Odd Title With An Even Mix of Artists

0 Comments · Tuesday, November 27, 2012
NINE is just fine — both the name and the Carnegie exhibit. The title discloses only the number of artists, who represent ceramics, sculpture, painting, glass and mixed media. The show is without an obvious or assigned theme. But rather than feeling like a mish-mash, it works.  

Holiday Issue 2012

When we enter the grown-up world, there are quite a few aspects of life that lose a great bit of childlike mystique: visits to the dentist, overalls, Hostess products and, perhaps most glaringly, the holiday season.   

Commercial Greats Collide at Cincinnati Art Museum

0 Comments · Tuesday, November 20, 2012
If Henri Toulouse-Lautrec and Herb Ritts could have a drink together, they’d find so much to talk about that the drinks might just keep coming. The Cincinnati Art Museum’s total collection of Toulouse-Lautrec prints (43) and posters (eight) fill niches at right and left of the Great Hall balcony entrance to Herb Ritts: L.A. Style, providing that sensuous outlay of black and white photographs with an historic backdrop.

What’s a nice girl like Emily Brandehoff doing making gory paintings like this? Young sweethearts look as if they’re from Our Town, except they’re chewing one another to a pulp.   

Star Power Gleams at The Taft

Why are Hollywood glamour photographs on display at the Taft Museum of Art? FotoFocus isn’t reason enough; the Taft likes to establish a tie between the renowned permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. So what is Myrna Loy doing here?   

Blue Man Group (Review)

Now say "Blue Man" — Ready Go!

1 Comment · Friday, October 19, 2012
 Drawing comparisons is a futile way to describe Blue Man Group. It’s a unique form of entertainment that includes music, electronica, childish gross-outs and silliness that owes a lot to the physicality Three Stooges and the silent slapstick of Harpo Marx.   

L.A. Style Meets Substance in Herb Ritts Exhibit

0 Comments · Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Shooting outdoors separated photographer Herb Ritts from studio-based New York peers. In addition to Malibu and El Mirage, Ritts used a rooftop studio.
