It's perhaps the biggest archeological find of the last century, some 8,000 terracotta statues buried in the Chinese countryside. China's terracotta warriors debut in Cincinnati Friday as Terracotta Army: Legacy of the First Emperor of China marches into the Cincinnati Art Museum.

In 1974, farmers digging a well near Xi’an, China, uncovered bronze arrow heads and shards of pottery. Their discoveries led archeologists to the tomb of Ying Zheng (259-210 B.C.) first emperor of China. It’s been called the greatest archeological discovery of the 20th century: an army of 8,000 life-size terracotta warriors and horses. Now, some of these warriors are in Cincinnati for the first time.

In July, the Cleveland Museum of Art will open the "Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors" exhibition. The show has drawn huge crowds in other cities, breaking museum attendance records. As it turns out, Kusama's exhibit is a huge hit on Instagram too -- people love taking selfies inside her installations.

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.

A new installation at the Cincinnati Art Museum juxtaposes traditional and contemporary art in an unusual way.

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.
