The Contemporary Arts Center, located in Downtown Cincinnati, is a gem. I have always been aware of the center, but I had never visited until today. As is the usual case, I could kick myself for not going sooner.
Jim and I decided that far too much time has passed since our last outing and Cinci just beckoned us with it’s restaurants and museums. The first Stop was Bakersfield, a little tacos, tequila, and whiskey joint in the OTR area. We filled up and got fueled up for the rest of the day. Next stop – CAC.
The CAC building is a piece of art in its own right, but we will save that for another time. The CAC does not have a permanent collection, but spreads temporary exhibits over 6 floors. We took the elevator to the top and worked our way down. One entire floor was dedicated to an exhibit of the work of Daniel Arsham. The sculptor had several pieces of freestanding human figures and 3 dimensional pieces mounted on the walls. Long story short and the exhibit was amazing.
Here are some highlights:
And of course, there has to be a photo of Jim taking photos. It is a rule of our outings. 1 Food. 2 Art or History. 3. Photo of Jim Taking a Photo. Sorry Jim, it’s tradition.
Oh, and don’t forget a photo of other people enjoying the artwork. Can’t forget that one either.
