The Collections: 6,000 Years of Art

December 01, 2011 - June 01, 2014


6,000 YearsThe Cincinnati Art Museum welcomes hundreds of important works of art onto permanent display. Come explore a variety of works of art spanning six thousand years, some pieces brought up from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s storage, and placed in what has been transformed into open storage for the community to see. These galleries will include most of the antiquities previously on display in the Schmidlapp wing, a large part of the Native American collection, a “salon style” display of paintings, a rotating print cabinet, and important pieces of Fashion Art, Textiles, and Decorative Arts.



The Collections: 6,000 Years of Art will close June 2, 2014 to welcome a special exhibition of works by Tom Wesselman, opening Fall 2014.
