Local and National Artists in Art Show at Cincinnati Museum Center

CINCINNATI – Join us on Thursday, June 21 from 6-9 p.m. as Cincinnati Museum Center hosts the Pompeii Art Show. Inspired by our special exhibit, A Day in Pompeii, artists from Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Florida, Tennessee and Maryland have created their own twist on this ill-fated city. Don’t miss this evening of art, culture and a trip half way around the world with entry to the blockbuster exhibit, A Day in Pompeii.

The show includes a silent auction of the works, with starting bids ranging from $25 and up. Voting will also be held for Best of Show. Each attendee gets one vote and the top three Best of Show works will be made into limited-edition posters and sold in the Museum Center gift shop.
