The Cincinnati Art Museum has a new Director. Cameron Kitchin will start October 1.
In a release, the Art Museum reports its board of directors unanimously chose Kitchin for the position. He comes from the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art in Memphis, Tennessee where he served as director.
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.
