Please note: the deadline to submit information for this Consult-a-Curator event has now passed.


One of the many benefits of your membership is an invitation to our Consult-a-Curator event. For the increased safety of our members during this time of COVID-19, we have decided to make this a virtual event.

To participate in this opportunity to be provided informed opinions on your art by a member of our professional curatorial or conservation staff, we ask that you submit information and images below.

  • Fill-out online form for a maximum of two objects per membership.
  • Curators will offer informed opinions, as much as possible in a virtual format, about your objects. However, they are unable to provide monetary appraisals.
  • Conservators can provide suggestions, as much as possible in a virtual format, to care and repair of works of art.
  • Your current membership identification number will be needed for filling out the form and receiving feedback


Our staff will respond to your inquiry no later than November 30, 2020.

We are truly grateful for your support of the Cincinnati Art Museum and hope that you take advantage of this membership benefit.

This event is free for Members. Find out more about Membership at the Cincinnati Art Museum. For questions or more information, please contact the Membership Department at [email protected].


Additional Resources

Our library, The Mary R. Schiff Library & Archives, is also an excellent resource for reference material and artist information. It is open Thursday-Friday and the second Saturday of each month from 11am-5pm. To ask a question or request an appointment at the library, please email [email protected] or call (513) 639-2978.

If you are looking for information beyond what the museum can provide, you should contact an appraiser in your area. There are two main resources for finding reputable appraisers – The American Society of Appraisers, and the International Society of Appraisers. On each site you should be able to search by geographic region or by specialty. These are independent organizations and are in no way affiliated with the Cincinnati Art Museum.
