Evenings for Educators is the Cincinnati Art Museum’s monthly teacher professional development program. Through the lens of the Cincinnati Art Museum’s permanent collection and special exhibitions, Evenings for Educators supports all subjects taught in the classroom.

We encourage a STREAM approach as well as 21st Century Learning strategies in the museum and classroom. This program is offered for teachers of all grade levels and disciplines, art appreciation volunteers, pre-service education majors, teaching artists as well as community and museum educators.

The November program will focus on the special exhibition, Simply Brilliant: Artist-Jewelers of the 1960s and 1970s. Hear about the stunning artwork in this exhibition from Cynthia Amnéus, Chief Curator, and Curator of Fashion Arts and Textiles.

Teachers, you are invited to this free, online interactive program highlighting the Kara Walker: Cut to the Quick, special exhibition. Our guest speaker will be Ciona Rouse. This exhibition originated at the Frist Art Museum in Nashville, Tenn., and was co-curated by Frist Art Museum executive director and CEO Dr. Susan H. Edwards and poet Ciona Rouse. In addition to her curatorial responsibilities, Rouse composed original poems inspired by Walker’s works, which live inside the exhibition. In Cincinnati, Cut to the Quick will be guest curated by Rouse with Cincinnati Art Museum site curator Trudy Gaba.

Enjoy an evening of poetry, discussion, and an opportunity to deep dive into the artwork and context behind the work of Kara Walker.

This is a free event geared towards teachers from Evenings for Educators, but the general public is welcome to attend as well!

Registration required. You will receive a Microsoft Teams link to the event after registration.
