Cincinnati Art Museum Behind the Scenes in Conservation: Our objects conservator is working on a Japanese folding screen for the upcoming Masterpieces of Japanese Art exhibition. The screen has delicate bamboo shades set into the cart doors shown in each of its six panels. Over time some of the shades have warped and detached from their frames. The folding screen’s frame is also showing signs of wear. The lacquer is flaking and there are numerous rubs and chips in the surface. The objects conservator is working to clean and flatten the bamboo screens to fit them back into the panels and she is consolidating (applying adhesive) and inpainting losses in the lacquer frame. The painted portion of the screen will be a project for our paper conservator. You will be able to see this screen conserved and on display next year in the “Masterpieces of Japanese Art” from February 14th to August 30th 2015. 1 hour ago via Facebook

Regionalist Roundtables

November 12, 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.
