Activity Overview

Founded in 1939, the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, Ohio was one of the very first contemporary art institutions in the United States. It is unlike most other art museums because it does not maintain a permanent collection, instead choosing to focus on hosting temporary exhibitions. The museum also puts an emphasis on showcasing new art, and over the years has displayed works by relatively unknown artists such as Andy Warhol who later became famous. If your family likes art and is interested in seeing new works, this museum is certainly worth a visit.

Things to Do

  • Explore the museum's current exhibitions! You can learn more about what's currently on display here.
  • Take your child to the UnMuseum, a special gallery of interactive art where children can view artwork, do hands-on art projects, and participate in other family programs.
  • Check out The Story Tree, a special exhibit for young children created by teen artists that celebrates popular children's stories.

Contemporary Arts Center Insider Tips

  • Attend one of their Family Festival events which encourage children to participate in hands-on art projects with guest artists and educators.
