Schott Foundation giving CAM $500,000 to enhance exhibitions

The Harold C. Schott Foundation will donate $500,000 over a period of five years to strengthen the Cincinnati Art Museum’s special exhibitions and related programming.

This investment – $100,000 each year from 2016 to 2020 –  will help bring exhibitions to Cincinnati and to share art and learning opportunities with the community.

“A multi-year commitment at this level, for this purpose, is truly empowering for the Cincinnati Art Museum,” said Cameron Kitchin, CAM director. “Knowing we have a partner like the Harold C. Schott Foundation and its funding commitment allows us to pursue premier special exhibitions and bring the best of the world to Cincinnati.”

Museum visitors will benefit from this grant this fall with the opening of “Van Gogh: Into the Undergrowth.” On display Oct. 15 through Jan. 8, it will feature Van Gogh artworks from museums around the world. It also will include related art, including major works by Paul Cezanne, Claude Monet and Paul Gauguin. The museum will publish an original exhibition catalog to delve further into this new area of Van Gogh scholarship.
