Cincinnati Art Museum Have you met "Ghost Cat"? :) Why do you think a cat was roaming around CAM in the 1940s? What would you have named this spooky kitty? Interesting to think about! Our Mary R. Schiff Library Archivist Geoff found some interesting info on the history of felines at the Art Museum... “As it happens, I was looking through some of the museum’s old account books recently and noticed there used to be a weekly order for “cat meat”. Could this have been an offering to appease the spirit of ghost cat..? Or maybe it was just to feed the museum’s resident mouser, but that’s not so spooky!” #throwbackthursday #halloween.

ART 360: John Singleton Copley and Colonial Portraiture with Shannon Karol

April 26, 2014 - 02:00 pm to 03:00 pm

WHERE:
Attendees meet in Front Lobby

Join Shannon Karol, Assistant Director of Interpretive Programming, for a closer look at the portraits of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Greene by John Singleton Copley. Who were the Greenes and what do these paintings reveal about them? What do these paintings reveal about life in the American Colonies? Why did the Greenes select Copley as the artist to capture their likeness? These questions (and more) will be investigated as we seek to come away with a better understanding of these two portraits.

FREE. Reservations required. Please call (513) 721.ARTS (2787) to purchase tickets.
