44: Small Press & Artist Book Fair
This is a monthly “open house” series where the CAC showcases various local artists free in the lobby. 44 provides an easy and informal gathering space where the community can gain exposure to the variety of creative endeavors being incubated and honed in their backyard, and provides those who live, work and play downtown another way to integrate art into their daily lives. Because the program is hosted in the lobby, the remarkable glass-walled venue provides a street-level dialogue with all who walk by. Perfect for a mid-afternoon break, everyone is encouraged to stop in or just pause on the sidewalk for a moment to enjoy the view inside. Once you do, you’ll be amazed at the variety and level of talent that resides in our community.

About the Contemporary Arts Center
Founded in November 1939 as the Modern Art Society by three visionary women in Cincinnati, the Contemporary Arts Center was one of the first institutions in the U.S. dedicated to exhibiting the art of our time. In May 2003, the CAC relocated to its first free-standing home, the Lois & Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art, designed by Zaha Hadid. Throughout its distinguished history, the CAC has earned a reputation for stimulating thought and introducing new ideas by presenting the work of diverse artists from around the world, including hundreds of now-famous artists such as Laurie Anderson, Jasper Johns, Louise Nevelson, Nam June Paik, I.M. Pei, Pablo Picasso, Robert Rauschenberg, Kara Walker and Andy Warhol. The CAC focuses on new developments in painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, performance art and new media, presenting six to 12 exhibitions and over 20 performances annually. The CAC receives ongoing support from: Fine Arts Fund; Ohio Arts Council; The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation, City of Cincinnati Arts Grant Recipient; The National Endowment for the Arts; the generous contributions and grants of individuals, corporations and other foundations; CAC memberships, facility rentals, special events and sales from the CAC Store.
