A special feature is a temporary presentation of artworks from the museum’s permanent collection or a select arrangement of artworks lent from other institutions, organized by the Cincinnati Art Museum.

A special feature is similar to a special exhibition but is generally smaller and more focused in scope. Some museums call these “focused exhibitions” or “rotations.”
