Due to the powerful subject matter, the Cincinnati Art Museum encourages adults to preview the exhibition before bringing children. Additionally, visitors are encouraged to take photos in30 Americans provided that no flash, tripods, monopods, or selfie sticks are used. We encourage you to share your reflections on social media using the hashtag #CAM30.

Cincy versus CLE

Unfortunately, I can't add more photos to my account here at REALNEO - which really sucks.  But, I just came back from Cincinnati, where I was able to be at the opening day of 30 Americans.  If you get the chance, I highly recommend the trip.  Not only to see this exhibit, but to see how Cincinnati is recovering in a big way from the 2008 recession.  

Ironically, Kehinde Wiley's painting SLEEP (2008) - is the centerpiece of the collection featured in Cincinnati.  It is the first piece greeting visitors to the museum, flanked by two works of art that show portraiture in a more traditional sense.  I will write more here - soon.  In the meantime, take a virtual tour of the exhibit and also of images from a Cincinnati gallery featuring the work of Frank Hermann.

 

Additional Images!

 Linda, you can add as many images as you want using the File Attachment feature. Using this feature requires multiple steps. Ask Jeff Buster if he can send you a description. If not, you can can respond to this comment -- and I will describe the steps for you. 

Attaching images to comments on realneo

In order to insert an image into a comment on Realneo you have to produce a realneo.us URL for the image.    If you are the original reporter (ie you are commenting to your own earlier original post), then you can go to the File Attachment feature in the original post and upload a new, additonal image to the original post.    After the image is uploaded, copy the url and past into into the image icon in the comment.   

If you are not the original reporter,  you can go to "Create Content" heading under "My Blog" and click on "image"....then follow the same url pasting process into your comment elsewhere on realneo.  

I also understand that each post also has a maximum of 1mb of image attachment - however,  I am checking with superior tech persons on this issue.  

I hope this helps.    Thanks for everyone's interest in North East Ohio and civic journalism!
