Current Special Features

A special feature is a temporary presentation of artworks from the museum’s collection, or a select arrangement of artworks lent from other institutions, organized by the Cincinnati Art Museum. Special features are smaller and more focused in scope than special exhibitions. Some museums call these “focused exhibitions” or “rotations.”


Ohio Voices

August 15–November 30, 2023 Gallery 213

With works drawn from the museum’s collections, Ohio Voices explores prints and drawings created from 1925 to the present by accomplished African American artists with Ohio connections. The exhibition also celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Donald P. Sowell Endowment Committee, a museum affiliate group established in tribute to Donald P. Sowell (1929–1989), an important Cincinnati artist and art educator.
