CINCINNATI— Think you know great art when you see it? Prove it at the Cincinnati Art Museum’s FREE evening event Art After Dark: When You See It, Friday, September 28, 5–9 p.m.

The event celebrates #YouKnowGreatArtWhenYouSeeIt, a collaborative campaign organized by the Cincinnati Art Museum and LPK that highlights the beauty of discovering art. Using the museum’s asterisk logo and some of its most recognizable artworks, LPK created new interpretations of the permanent collection. By distilling the art down to the simplest recognizable form and representing that with an asterisk, the viewer has the chance to discover the core of the artwork.

Art After Dark guests can join the fun of #YouKnowGreatArtWhenYouSeeIt with a scavenger hunt and art-making activity, live music from Us, Today, food for purchase from Ché food truck, guided tours of the permanent collection and after-hours access to the entire museum.

The timeline for Art After Dark includes:

  • 6:30–8:30 p.m.: Live music from Us, Today.
  • 5–9 p.m.: Embark on an art-themed scavenger hunt. Pick up the hunt at the front desk, complete it, and turn it back in to the front desk to receive one free ticket to Life: Gillian Wearing and The Fabric of India. Limit one ticket per person.
