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! 12 hour ago via Facebook

Regionalist Roundtables

September 03, 2014 - 03:00 pm to 04:00 pm

Every Wednesday and Sunday, 3 p.m. from August 31-November 16, 2014

Contemplate.  Chat.  Change the way you think about American Gothic. 

Join us each Wednesday and Sunday at 3 p.m. for a conversation about American artists Grant Wood, John Steuart Curry, and Thomas Hart Benton.  These three artists are featured in the special exhibition Conversations around American Gothic, which places the iconic painting in context among other masterworks such as the Art Museum’s Daughters of Revolution. 

Each conversation will begin with a question that addresses a big idea explored within the exhibition.  Art Museum staff and visitors will engage in a dialogue that will help to provide new contexts for American paintings of the 1920s and 30s.  Because we each bring our own perspectives to these artworks, no two conversations will be the same.  Come back often and explore Conversations around American Gothic with your fellow art lovers.

This is a free program, but requires a Conversations around American Gothic exhibition admission ticket.

**This program will not occur on Sunday, October 26 due to the lecture The Three Lives of Grant Wood's American Gothicwith Dr. Wanda Corn.
