Gorham Silver: Designing Brilliance comes to the Cincinnati Art Museum!
This dazzling presentation of exceptional silver and mixed-metal wares casts new light on the legacy of Gorham and reflects the industry, artistry, innovation and technology of the manufactory for 120 years. Adeptly coupling art and industry, Gorham boldly rose from a small firm, established in 1831 in Providence, Rhode Island, to become the largest silver company in the world, placing uniquely American design on the international stage. Creating everything from commissioned presentation pieces to show-stoppers for the dining room, Gorham responded to the era’s desire to celebrate, feast, socialize, honor and simply enjoy the everyday in style. This exhibit will run from March 13—June 7, 2020. It is ticketed for general admission, but free for museum members.
About the 2019-2020 Cincinnati Art Museum Exhibitions
The Cincinnati Art Museum offers a one-of-a-kind lineup of new exhibitions and events starting this fall and running through summer 2020.
In addition to national and international exhibitions, the museum will be hosting the four-day Art in Bloom special event, opening its accessible front entrance and unveiling the new ArtClimb staircase that opens the museum to the community.
The 2019–2020 exhibition schedule sees the museum connecting Cincinnati with art from across cultures, countries and history. Each of the exhibitions offers a wide range of accompanying art-related programs, activities and special events for the community. A new member benefit, Member Mornings, allows early access to the museum for members only from 10–11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Through these exhibitions, with works of art ranging from eras of antiquity to contemporary, and addressing history as well as modern social and cultural concerns, the museum hopes to further its goal of contributing to a more vibrant Cincinnati by inspiring its people and connecting our communities. General admission to the museum is free. Some exhibitions are ticketed.
Cincinnati Art Museum members receive free admission to all ticketed special exhibitions as well as additional benefits. The following exhibition schedule is subject to change. Visit the Cincinnati Art Museum online for the latest information.
