Dialogues with Artists events take place 7 – 8 p.m. with the general Art Museum remaining open until 9 p.m. for Art After Dark.
Engaging a work of visual art is an intimate experience. At each event in this new series, participants will have the opportunity to see up close a work of art by each of two participating artists, hear the artists speak about their work and get involved into the open discussion of the works and their context.
Join us for wine & cheese and informal conversation with the artists after the event in the intimate setting of the new rooftop library space, located in the old building of the Art Academy of Cincinnati.
