Five Reasons to Love CAM

I am the Visitor Services Coordinator here at the Cincinnati Art Museum. I am a lover of art and have a passion for learning more about Latin American cultures. Here are a few of my favorite things about CAM.

  • Maria van Oosterwijck, Flower Still Life and surrounding gallery 208
    • This intimate gallery provides a home to several colorful still life paintings that hold so much detail you might see a butterfly twirl right off the canvas. I enjoy searching for all the fine brushstrokes in this gallery.

Gerhard Richter, 908-2

I enjoy looking at all the many layers of the paint of this work and finding something new each time I walk by it in the gallery.

    • The Alice Bimel Courtyard

    • The Mary R. Schiff Library

 

  • The view from the library rooftop is a hidden spot! On nice days I like to take my lunch out and just watch the city around me.

 

  • L.A. Roberts’ landscapes in the Folk Art Gallery.  

 

  • These two paintings have vibrant colors and beautiful patterning. The Folk Art Gallery is a nice spot to view several different art objects (including a guitar!).
