About the Contemporary Arts Center
Founded in November 1939 as the Modern Art Society by three visionary women in Cincinnati, the Contemporary Arts Center was one of the first institutions in the U.S. dedicated to exhibiting the art of our time. In May 2003, the CAC relocated to its first free-standing home, the Lois & Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art, designed by Zaha Hadid. Throughout its distinguished history, the CAC has earned a reputation for stimulating thought and introducing new ideas by presenting the work of diverse artists from around the world, including hundreds of now-famous artists such as Laurie Anderson, Jasper Johns, Louise Nevelson, Nam June Paik, I.M. Pei, Pablo Picasso, Robert Rauschenberg, Kara Walker and Andy Warhol. The CAC focuses on new developments in painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, performance art and new media, presenting six to 12 exhibitions and over 20 performances annually. The CAC receives ongoing support from: Fine Arts Fund; Ohio Arts Council; The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr. /U.S. Bank Foundation, City of Cincinnati Arts Grant Recipient; The National Endowment for the Arts; the generous contributions and grants of individuals, corporations and other foundations; CAC memberships, facility rentals, special events and sales from the CAC Store. UnMuseum programs and artists are sponsored in part by the Charles H. Dater Foundation, Josephine Schell Russell Charitable Trust, PNC Bank, Trustee, and The Ladislas and Vilma Segoe Foundation.
Can you hear, smell or touch art?
You can in the UnMuseum!
The Contemporary Arts Center's Sara M. & Patricia A. Vance Education Center: The UnMuseum® represents a groundbreaking new concept in museum education for children, schools and families. Occupying the entire sixth floor of the new Lois & Richard Rosenthal Center, the UnMuseum is a gallery of participatory art designed to offer children and parents an enjoyable experience with the most innovative art of our time.
Introducing audiences to contemporary art, the UnMuseum reaches far beyond gallery guides and learning stations by commissioning first-rate artists to create works of art especially for young audiences. Children, along with their teachers and parents, can experience and interpret works of art on a multitude of levels. The UnMuseum presents a variety of programming to serve the needs of wide audiences, including hands-on art projects, school tours, after-school clubs, family days and other programs that serve young people.
Weekday mornings, the UnMuseum becomes an experimental "classroom" where school groups have a unique, multi-layered experience with art, led by a trained guide.
On weekends and afternoons, the UnMuseum becomes an inviting environment where children, parents or caregivers share an enjoyable art experience together.
Not just for children, the interactive installations in the UnMuseum appeals to visitors of all ages and levels of familiarity with art. The UnMuseum is a model for museum education for the art world at large.
- UnMuseum programs and artists are sponsored in part by the Charles H. Dater Foundation , Josephine Schell Russell Charitable Trust, PNC Bank, Trustee, and The Ladislas and Vilma Segoe Foundation.
