Cincinnati Art Museum Behind the Scenes in Conservation: New dimensions in treating our collections Our textile conservator has been preparing a colorful 1950s silk jumpsuit by Tina Leser for photography. Unfortunately two of the original wildly floral gold-plated buttons were missing. Our friends at Ethicon Endo-Surgery in Blue Ash have come to the rescue. They borrowed one of the buttons, performed a digital 3-d scan of it and printed hard-plastic copies from the scan with their highest quality 3-d printer. We are very happy with the results (below). Back in Textiles Conservation the copies will be gilded and painted, the replacements will be attached to the jumpsuit, and the spares will be carefully stowed away. A big thank you to Mark Ransick and all the team at Ethicon! 3 hour ago via Facebook

Evenings for Educators: See It & Make It: Daoism in Art

October 16, 2013 - 04:00 pm to 07:00 pm

4:00 – 7:00 p.m. (registration and refreshments 4-5 p.m., program begins at 5 p.m.)

A spin off from the popular “Make It & Take Its” this year we are hosting two “See It & Make Its,” which include docent-led tours through a special exhibition and a hands-on art making component in response to the art viewed. This evening, curators present on the exhibition, Realm of the Immortals: Daoist Art in the Cincinnati Art Museum. Following, we explore ways to integrate the concepts of Chinese Daoism as both a philosophy and “folk religion” into classroom curricula.

$10 Art Museum Members; $20 non-members; $5 students. Reservations required. For more information, email school&[email protected]  

 

 

Participating teachers will receive CEU certificates in May.
