CINCINNATI— Kick off your summer at Cincinnati Art Museum’s “A Happening” event on the Art Climb on Friday, June 18 from 6–10 p.m. The ticketed celebration will take place outside the museum along the Art Climb steps, at the corner of Gilbert Avenue and Eden Park Drive and will make use of the museum’s beautifully redesigned parking lot and arrival court and highlight the views of the city and sculptures currently on view.

Attendees will enjoy live music by the Young Heirlooms and DJ Mowgli, performances by Pones, and delicious food and drink throughout the evening.

All proceeds from the event will support programming at the museum, contributing to a more vibrant Cincinnati by inspiring its people and connecting communities.

Since the early 1950s, artists like Allan Kaprow, Jim Dine, Yoko Ono, Andy Warhol and others have staged “Happenings”—live, experiential art events that, designed to dismantle conventions and facilitate an atmosphere of creativity, self-expression, and fun. It is with this inspiration the museum’s young professional leaders, the CAM Catalysts, present this summer’s biggest event to benefit the museum.

Museum member tickets and young professional tickets are $75 each. General admission tickets are $100 per person. Both are available online and at the door and include food and drink. Guests must be 21 and older to attend. To learn about donor opportunities, please contact [email protected] or call (513) 639-2962.
