Inspiring future generations and artists

Donate Now


We hope you will join us in opportunities to be inspired by art at your Cincinnati Art Museum! Located in the heart of the museum just off the Great Hall, the Rosenthal Education Center (REC) was made possible by a generous donation from The Rosenthal Family Foundation. This one-of-a-kind drop-in space features rotating interactive installations and artmaking activities that bring the museum’s permanent collection and special exhibitions to life for diverse age ranges and learning styles. 

In addition, the REC Artist in Residence program offers opportunities for local artists. From May through October each year, the REC features an exhibition of interactive artwork created for the REC by a local artist or artists, as well as five interactive wall stations highlight works from the museum’s permanent collection selected by the artists.  

By donating to the Cincinnati Art Museum, you contribute to our continued growth and ability to make inspirational spaces like the REC available now and for future generations.
