Since the early 1950s, artist like Allan Kaprow, Jim Dine, Yoko Ono, Andy Warhol and others have staged “Happenings” live, experiential art events that, by definition, dismantle conventions and facilitate an atmosphere of creativity, self-expression, and fun. It is with this inspiration the museum’s young professional leaders, the CAM Catalysts, present this summer’s biggest event to benefit the museum aptly coined A Happening.

Kick off your summer at Cincinnati Art Museum’s “A Happening” event on the Art Climb on Friday, June 18 from 6–10 p.m. The ticketed celebration will take place outside the museum along the Art Climb steps, at the corner of Gilbert Avenue and Eden Park Drive and will make use of the museum’s beautifully redesigned parking lot and arrival court and highlight the views of the city and sculptures currently on view.

Attendees will enjoy live music by the Young Heirlooms and DJ Mowgli, performances by Pones, and delicious food and drink throughout the evening.

All proceeds from A Happening will support the programming provided by the museum—both virtual
and in-person—that contribute to a more vibrant Cincinnati by inspiring its people and connecting our communities.

The safety of our guests is of the upmost importance. We will follow all COVID-19 safety regulations and social distancing guidelines. Guests must be 21 to attend.
