Cincinnati Art Museum Behind the Scenes in Conservation: Upside down and inside out! Several wool shawls dating from the 18th and 19th centuries were being repacked for storage when this one caused some confusion: which side is the “right side” (the side that should go “out” when the shawl is worn)? The decorated paisley borders have been sewn “right sides to wrong sides” at two corners. A sloppy seamstress’ mistake? A prescient deconstructivist design choice? Not at all! This shawl is a giant square intended to be folded along the diagonal when worn: the mis-matched corners are actually a clever adjustment to allow both folded halves to be “right sides out” when in use. 3 hour ago via Facebook

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.
