On view through January 24, 2021
Taft Museum of Art
Cincinnati, Ohio

The Taft Museum of Art celebrates its historic house’s bicentennial year with “A Splendid Century: Cincinnati Art 1820-1920.” Featuring Cincinnati art and artists spanning the first 100 years of the house’s existence, this exhibition includes rarely seen works from local private collections and museums from around the region.

”Nearly 60 works of art will tell the story of the city’s arts scene as the Taft’s historic house residents would have experienced it and contributed to it—creating a picture of Cincinnati visual culture during the Golden Age of art in the Queen City,” says the Taft’s associate curator, Tamera Muente.
