Since its founding, the Cincinnati Art Museum has supported the work of living artists through exhibitions and the acquisition of artworks. The growing Contemporary Art collection continues in this tradition, encouraging understanding of our times and cultures through art produced around the corner and around the world. The artists represented include those working in a wide range of media, such as Frank Stella, Jenny Holzer, Mark Bradford, Cindy Sherman, and Ellsworth Kelly. With the most extensive public collection of contemporary art in Cincinnati, it offers a living archive of today’s art while also preserving and documenting these works for future generations.
