CINCINNATI— Cincinnati Art Museum’s last Art After Dark of 2019 will be celebrated on one of the biggest party nights of the year.

At the Cincinnati Art Museum’s FREE night-before-Thanksgiving celebration Art After Dark: Girl Power!, visitors can celebrate special exhibition Women Breaking Boundaries and the #PowerofHer on Wednesday, November 27, 5–9 p.m.

Art After Dark guests will enjoy live music from female-fronted punk band Leggy, food for purchase, specialty cocktails and free admission to special exhibitions Treasures of the Spanish World, Women Breaking Boundaries, and The Levee: A Photographer in the American South.

Women Breaking Boundaries (on view through April 12, 2020) celebrates women in art and art history through works from the museum’s permanent collection from the seventeenth century to today. The special exhibition is the museum’s main contribution and focal point to the larger ArtsWave Power of Her program.
