Cincinnati Art Museum Behind the Scenes in Conservation: Upside down and inside out! Several wool shawls dating from the 18th and 19th centuries were being repacked for storage when this one caused some confusion: which side is the “right side” (the side that should go “out” when the shawl is worn)? The decorated paisley borders have been sewn “right sides to wrong sides” at two corners. A sloppy seamstress’ mistake? A prescient deconstructivist design choice? Not at all! This shawl is a giant square intended to be folded along the diagonal when worn: the mis-matched corners are actually a clever adjustment to allow both folded halves to be “right sides out” when in use. 3 hour ago via Facebook

Art in the Making: Watercolor

May 17, 2014 - 01:00 pm to 03:00 pm

This is a rewarding experience that can enhance artistic development. It can do so much for a child, and can also add to your own appreciation for art making. This class format was designed for children ages 6–12 accompanied by an adult who’ll actively share in the art experience. Select local artists make it fun by leading interactive classes that include a gallery tour and hands-on art activity. This month you’ll explore the exciting medium of watercolor with artist Ken Henson before creating your own beautiful painting in the studio

$10 per pair Art Museum Members, $20 per pair non-members; ($3/$6 for each additional person). Reservations required. Please call (513) 721.ARTS (2787) to purchase tickets.
