CINCINNATI— Art After Dark returns to the Cincinnati Art Museum with a celebration of special photography exhibition The Levee: A Photographer in the American South on Friday, January 31, 5–9 p.m. Guests are encouraged to dress in black and white to celebrate the theme.

Art After Dark guests will enjoy music from DJ ETrayn, food for purchase from Camp Washington Chili, specialty cocktails and free admission to special exhibitions The Levee: A Photographer in the American South and Women Breaking Boundaries.

The Levee: A Photographer in the American South presents a body of photographs by Sohrab Hura (b. 1981, West Bengal, India) in which the artist explores themes of connection, perspective and place. The landscapes and portraits of The Levee trace Hura’s travel along the Mississippi River from its confluence with the Ohio to the far reaches of the delta in Louisiana. Hura, who lives and works primarily in India, made the pictures on a road trip he took in 2016 while participating in a loosely collaborative documentary project called Postcards from America.

The timeline for Art After Dark includes:

  • 5–6 p.m.: Happy hour on beer, wine and cocktails. Guests 21+ only.
  • 5–9 p.m.: Food available for purchase from Camp Washington Chili (while supplies last.)
  • 5–9 p.m.: Music from DJ ETrayn.
  • 5–9 p.m.: Free photobooth available to guests.
  • 6, 7, 8 p.m.: Docent-guided tours of special exhibition The Levee. Free admission. RSVP not required.

Art After Dark is free and open to the public. Parking is free. To learn more, visit cincinnatiartmuseum.org/artafterdark. Art After Dark is sponsored by P&G, Dewey’s Pizza, Cincinnati CityBeat, and 91.7 WVXU Cincinnati.
