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! 12 hour ago via Facebook

Travel back in time to the Beat Generation era of Greenwich Village, Brooklyn with our newest exhibition From the Village to Vogue: The Modernist Jewelry of Art Smith and admire a time of fast, new ideas, designs and dances. Elementz will bring the beat of Art Smith’s spirit to the modern day with breakdancing (6 – 8 pm) and spoken word poetry inspired by the permanent collection. This Friday during Art After Dark, attend one of our tours of Bling through the collection, assisted by spoken word poets from Voices of Freedom (a division of Elementz). Tours will begin with two spoken word pieces, followed by a short tour of the special exhibition, From the Village to Vogue: The Modernist Jewelry of Art Smith. Tours take place at 5:30 p.m. (members-only), 6:30 & 7:30 p.m. (general public).
