Making Prints and Graphics Hip and Popular for Museums

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 29, 2009
Two popular art museum shows are disproving the notion that the public rarely flocks to prints/graphics shows: 'The Psychedelic Experience: Rock Posters from the San Francisco Bay Area 1965-1971' in Denver and 'Shepard Fairey: Supply and Demand' in Boston. The latter show comes to the CAC here in February.  

Bessie Potter Vonnoh: Sculptor of Women (Review)

Pioneer succeeded as a 19th-century 'sculptor of women'

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 1, 2009
At the turn of the 20th Century, when a woman's most acceptable occupation was motherhood, Bessie Potter Vonnoh succeeded professionally as a sculptor, flouting convention by focusing on a career instead of raising children. Her success as an independent working artist rested on subject matter that supported traditional notions of women, which makes the Cincinnati Art Museum's current exhibition of her work all the more fascinating.

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.

Before discussing the Cincinnati Art Museum's recently announced plans for its 2009-10 exhibition season, it's worth noting that the museum is coming off a high point: The just-concluded 'Surrealism and Beyond' show of work from the Israel Museum in Jerusalem drew more than 40,000 visitors.

It isn't yet as big as Opening Day, but the Fountain Square Floral Carpet is becoming a local Rite of Spring. The carpet consisting of some 24,000 potted pansies, with lettuce plants providing verdancy, was installed April 7. But that doesn't mean it won't change over the course of the next several weeks.

As the Cincinnati Art Museum enters the last month of 'Isn't It Great to Be an Artist?,' the debut exhibit of its bold new Robert A. Lewis Collection of (mostly) folk and outsider art, the show has sparked much discussion about the perennial question of "What is art?"  

Art of Dreams and Desire

Dada and Surrealism take over the Cincinnati Art Museum

0 Comments · Wednesday, February 11, 2009
Like many angst-ridden teenagers in the 1980s, I was a huge fan of Surrealism. Most idolized Salvador Dali, but I loved Rene Magritte and his paintings of massive boulders hovering over the sea, the locomotive that churned forth from a fireplace and the pipe that wasn't a pipe at all. Museum-goers will get the chance to explore the complexities of this art movement when 'Surrealism and Beyond: In the Israel Museum, Jerusalem' at the Cincinnati Art Museum through May 17.

Noel Martin, a lifelong Cincinnati painter and graphic-design pioneer, passed away Feb. 23 at the age of 86. In addition to formal training, Martin taught himself typography and graphics, and in doing so revolutionized museum publishing with his designs for the Cincinnati Art Museum and his modern logo for the Contemporary Arts Center.

Solid curating and progressive notions have gone into the Cincinnati Art Museum's new solo exhibition in the Vance-Waddell Gallery.
