Join Impact 100 and the Cincinnati Art Museum (CAM) 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 CAM, will provide a thought-provoking examination of the museum’s permanent collection through the lens of diversity, equity, accessibility and inclusion. Holtrop will also provide a virtual sneak preview of an exhibition of provocative and sometimes controversial works by African-American artist Kara Walker, opening at the museum on Nov. 5, 2021.
In the weeks following the virtual evening event, small-group tours will be held at the Cincinnati Art Museum to provide Impact 100 members and guests opportunities to engage directly with the art and each other while viewing classic works through a new lens. The small group tours will be hosted by both former and current Impact Board members in addition to a CAM docent. It’s a wonderful opportunity to connect with other members and more deeply explore works of art.
In-person tours will offer additional optional activities immediately following the tours, so participants can continue to socialize and discuss what they observed and learned. Some follow-up events already being planned include:
·Lunch at the Museum’s Terrace Café
·A Saturday walk around Mt. Adams, followed by celebratory Mimosas
·A group tour of the Kara Walker Exhibit
·An evening group dinner close to the Museum
·Impact 100 outing to CAM’S Art After Dark
Please mark your calendar for the virtual part of the event on Oct. 28, and look for more details and a registration invite after the AAC. We encourage you to consider bringing a guest with you – this event will be free to members and non-members – all are welcome!
