Timed 15-minute slots will be available for each curatorial department with 10 spots available per curator. Timed slots ensure that you and the curator have a designated and guaranteed time to discuss your pieces thoughtfully.
Reservations will be honored through a first come first serve basis. Your reservation will be confirmed through email. Should your desired timeslot not be available a waitlist will be provided.
The Consult-a-Curator registration page requires participants to upload photos of the one to two pieces you wish to have evaluated. Your images help our curators confirm the correct curatorial department. If you need guidance on which department to choose, descriptions of each will be available on your digital registration form. The museum will contact you if a different curatorial area is considered a better option.
Due to renovation work in our DeWitt wing, Consult-a-Curator will be hosted within The Mary R. Schiff Library & Archives. We ask each attendee to please arrive five minutes prior to your appointment through our Castellini entrance (located right at the base of the Yinka Shonibare sculpture). The Castellini entrance is right before our main entrance with quick access to main parking lot. Please treat your timeslot as an appointment. Latecomers will only be given the remaining appointment time with their curator—not the full 15 minutes—to prevent the next appointment from starting late.
Registration will be available starting October 11, 2023. This event is free for members, but registration is required. Should you have any questions, please contact the membership department at [email protected] or 513-639-2966. Learn more about Membership at the Cincinnati Art Museum.
