Cincinnati Art Museum Behind the Scenes in Conservation: On a Closed day. Sometimes we need more space than our Conservation labs provide. Below, on a recent Monday when the museum was closed, we took over the Great Hall for the morning. We had a large contemporary painting on canvas that was due to be rolled for storage, and this was the best place to do it. Here some helpers from the Registration department are removing the dozens of tacks that secured the painting to its multi-membered stretcher. The painting was rolled face out on the large cardboard tube behind them, along with an interleaving material, then wrapped. (It’s done face-out so that the paint is not compressed in a concave orientation.) The stretcher was taken apart, as it’s designed to, and the rolled painting and stretcher were moved to storage. To exhibit the painting in the future, the stretcher will be reassembled and the painting re-stretched on it. This is a common conservation procedure with large modern paintings on canvas, though one that we always need to scheme to find floor space to perform! 1 hour ago via Facebook

Teacher Guides + Lesson Plans

 

Lesson Plans are designed to connect art object-based learning to the curriculum and are available for several works from the Art Museum's permanent collection.

 

Teacher Guides provide detailed information on a particular artist and/or work from the Art Museum's permanent collection. While giving background information, these guides also provide curricular connections, critical thinking questions and resources for further study.

 

Class Experiences are detailed, art-based activities on works from the Art Museum's permanent collection. These lessons provide teachers with information on a work of art and step by step directions on how to integrate art-looking and art-making in the classroom. While created for programs with specific audiences in mind, these lessons can all be adapted to fit your specific grade level or classroom scenario. We encourage creative interpretation.

 

Discovering the Story utilizes works of art from the Cincinnati Art Museum's collection in conjunction with historical facts and data compiled by various community partners, such as Hamilton County Public Libraries as well as the Greater Cincinnati Television Educational Foundation (CET). The story of Cincinnati is told in all its glory highlighting the Underground Railroad and Cincinnati's Golden Age, 1850-1900.

 

Through a Child's Eyes brings art, community and young eyes creatively together. Through seven sequential units, students ranging from Pre-school through Third grade explore community while building skills in math, science, language arts, social studies, art and music. Complimented by a Focus Book and Focus Artwork, each unit engages and enlightens your students.

 

Vertices: Geometry Meets Art  brings math and art together in CET’s fresh look at K-2 geometry concepts using artwork from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s collection.
