CINCINNATI— The Cincinnati Art Museum is celebrating the new year and new special exhibitions with an “at home” version of Art After Dark on Friday, Jan. 29 from 5–9 p.m. Follow the museum on social media to join the fun.

During the virtual event, guests will enjoy a series of exclusive video premieres, including a cocktail tutorial from Molly Wellmann, local music from Indie Pop quartet The Ophelias, a performance from local dance group Pones celebrating artwork by Anila Quayyum Agha, and a curator-led virtual walkthrough of special exhibition Frank Duveneck: American Master.

Frank Duveneck: American Master is the first comprehensive exhibition of the artist’s work in more than 30 years. More than 90 examples across media from the holdings of the museum, the leading repository of the Kentucky native’s work, and 35 pieces on loan from collections across the United States, provide a fresh, in-depth look at this important artist. The exhibition is on view at the museum through March 28. Advanced online tickets/registration is required to see in person:
