Join Impact 100 and the Cincinnati Art Museum this fall for a virtual presentation and in-person museum tours, as we explore diverse perspectives on the museum’s collection. On Thursday, Oct. 28, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Emily Holtrop, director of learning & interpretation at the Cincinnati Art Museum, will provide a thought-provoking examination of the museum’s permanent collection through the lens of diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion.
Through lively and engaged discussion on Zoom, Impact 100 members and guests will learn about works of art that span six continents and more than 6,000 years, many depicting stories of racial inequity and colonialism. Holtrop will also provide a preview of an exhibition of provocative and sometimes controversial works by African-American artist Kara Walker, opening at the museum on Nov. 6, 2021.
Small-group tours will be held at the Cincinnati Art Museum in the weeks immediately following the presentation to provide Impact 100 members and guests opportunities to engage directly with the art and each other as you view classic works through a new lens. Registration information will be made available as soon as the tours are finalized.
