While the Cincinnati Art Museum is closed, a sniper fires 19 rounds into a bronze cube. Video and still cameras record the bullets as they make their way from the sniper’s rifle in the museum’s front lobby, travel past more traditional works of art, and pierce the metal cube, mounted in the Great Hall. “Crown,” the work of conceptual artist Todd Pavlisko, now on display at the museum, has generated discussion and some controversy.  Matt Distel, Art Museum adjunct curator of contemporary art, joins us to discuss “Crown” and its place in the world of art.

Oxford, Ohio native and Miami University alum Todd Pavlisko says the goal of Crown is to make people view and experience the museum's masterpieces differently. He collaborated with a sharpshooter to fire bullets through the Schmidlapp Gallery into a brass cube. The bullet's journey was captured using high-speed cameras and edited into an audiovisual experience.
