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


    This little square of nature right in the middle of the Art Museum is a great place to sit under the trees for lunch and catch some sun.

  • 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.cam_1967.316

    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!).
