A gift of $11.75 million to the Cincinnati Art Museum – to establish the Alice Bimel Endowment for Asian Art – was announced at the museum’s 137th Annual Meeting of the Shareholders of the Cincinnati Museum Association on May 15. This is the largest single monetary gift in the museum’s history!
Warning: This is not your mother’s art fair! An alternative art fair is breaking the mold with a new event aimed at tossing aside the tents and typical itinerary, in exchange for performance, art actions, experimental engagements and ephemeral works.
Two important instructions this week:
1) Contribute to ArtsWave today to help them reach their campaign goal of $12.6 million. The arts are absolutely key in making Cincinnati uniquely special.
2) Plan your weekend using our hand-picked events!
