    Public Tour: Not in New York: Carl Solway and Cincinnati

    September 24, 2016

    Carl Solway’s generosity and relationships with artists, artmaking processes, museums and the community indelibly raised Cincinnati’s place in 20th century contemporary art discourse. This exhibition explores some of the most compelling contemporary artworks in the museum’s permanent collection that connect to Carl Solway’s transformative influence on the Cincinnati arts scene.

    About 50 artworks, including paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings and multi-media, will be on display, some for the first time. The exhibition will feature works by John Cage, Ann Hamilton, Nam June Paik, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselman, Jim Dine, Robert Rauschenberg, Judy Pfaff, Pat Steir, Helen Frankenthaler and many others. Solway’s unique role in the museum’s history is evidenced in these works, drawn solely from the permanent collection of the Cincinnati Art Museum.

    Public tours are always FREE and meet in the front lobby.
