Attendees meet in Front Lobby

Discover new favorites and learn more about old friends! Each month, Art 360 offers visitors the opportunity to look at art in the permanent collection from all angles and to discover the who, what, when, where and why of some of the museum’s greatest treasures. Through extended conversation with museum staff in the galleries, explore the techniques and processes used to make an object and the cultural, historical, and social factors that shaped its creation.

This month check out the Amazing Inflatable Dress with Chandra Obie. Join textile conservator Chandra Obie to discuss the recent conservation of the “pneumatic dress” designed by Issey Miyake.  Obie will share the story of the unique conservation challenges she faced as she transformed this piece from flattened sleeves back to a “blown up” work of art.    

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