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.

Memories in the Museums: Decorative Arts + Design: Jewelry + Modernism

WHERE:
Attendees meet in Front Lobby

Designed especially for visitors with memory loss and their caregivers, Memories in the Museum is a new program developed in partnership between the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Taft Museum of Art. On the first Wednesday of every month, participants join trained docents at one of the partner institutions to look at art together, discuss observations, and share memories. Multisensory and multi-modal activities complement each session and encourage remembering through all of the senses. All participants are invited for fellowship and refreshments prior to the session.
