The Cincinnati Art Museum is expanding its hours and offering free parking just in time for the opening of two original exhibitions.
This fall, the museum is opening two original exhibitions, with “Van Gogh: Into the Undergrowth” and “Kentucky Renaissance: The Lexington Camera Club and Its Community, 1954-1974.”
The museum will keep its doors open Thursdays from 5 to 8 p.m, and general parking will be free to the public. CAM members will be given access to preferred parking.
For the 2016-17 season, new programs will include “Ancient Meets Contemporary,” an antiquities-centered offering in partnership with the University of Cincinnati Classics Department; “Autism Family Exploration,” designed for families with children with autism; “In Conversation,” a lecture series exploring what happens when experts from different fields present distinct views on the same artworks; and “Gallery Games,” a collaboration with 21c Museum Hotel that combines happy hour and in-gallery competition.
“By providing aspirational scholarly exhibitions, cultivating international partnerships, extending operating hours, facilitating access for all, and expanding programs and membership benefits, we are embracing our community service role,” said Cameron Kitchin, CAM director.
