transforming our museum—inside and out

In 2016, the museum created a bold strategic plan to expand its reach and impact in the community. Our new view will be realized in three priority investment areas:  

  • Enhance visitor experience and scholarship
  • Expand community impact and outreach
  • Grow organizational capacity

To support this vision, the museum conceived and began to execute the A New View campaign – a comprehensive, $65 million fundraising effort to support the key capital and programmatic priorities of the museum’s strategic plan.

This is the most ambitious undertaking of its kind in Cincinnati Art Museum history.
