Cincinnati Art Museum (2016)

The Cincinnati Art Museum, located at 953 Eden Park Drive in Mount Adams.

With spring break comes the excitement of having a week off to take it easy, not having to worry about your next assignment and, for some, getting to take a rejuvenating vacation to help carry you through the rest of the semester. For others, spring break is spent stuck at home in Clifton. While not a beach getaway or a road trip to your favorite location, the city of Cincinnati is full of exciting and enjoyable events, exhibits and more to fill your week off from classes with. 

One Each: Still Lifes by Cézanne, Pissarro and Friends” at the Cincinnati Art Museum

The Cincinnati Art Museum’s newest exhibit, “One Each: Still Lifes by Cézanne, Pissarro and Friends,” will open on March 11th for its two month run at the museum. Showcasing works from five 19th century painters – Cèzanne, Pissarro, Bazille, Manet and Monet – the exhibition will feature early works from these artists who would go on to create the Impressionist movement that would modernize the art world. With its focus on still life, visitors to the museum will see these artists' unique takes on everyday objects, playing with perspective, color and form.

Free. March 11 – May 8. 953 Eden Park Drive
