Experience European masterpieces, cutting-edge contemporary art, an extensive collection of American art from the United States and Latin America.

Many times, when people talk about taking in the finest collections of art that are available, they immediately think of visiting the great museums that are found in Europe. The fact is that many art museums in America also boast impressive collections of fine and treasured works of artistic expression. For the most part, the curator of an art museum in a US city is quite aware that they can't compete with the grand museums of Europe. In many cases, the curators of the European art museums feel they must leave the well-known masterpieces so that those who cannot visit the museum frequently have an opportunity to see the "celebrity" works of art, such as the Mona Lisa.
American art museums also differ from the European art museums in terms of their commitment to being on the cutting edge of the global contemporary art community. While not always the case, the more traditional of the European art galleries and museums also tend to feature the more traditional, classic and well-known artists and are generally slower to reach out to acquire works of art that are outside of that traditional style and genre.
The Women's Art Museum Association, or WAMA, formed with the intention of benefiting ordinary Americans in the Cincinnati, Ohio area, founded the Cincinnati Art Museum in 1877. The museum has grown since then to what it is today -- the largest art museum in the state of Ohio. The WAMA realized that historically, art had always been created specifically for society's privileged members, and that art museums typically are funded by the wealthy, educated upper class. The group was determined to bring art and education about the arts to the masses. In order to make this goal more accessible to the people, the Cincinnati Art Museum always opened its doors for free on Saturdays. The Cincinnati Art Museum is housed in a building built in the Romanesque style, and houses over 60,000 pieces of art and artifacts. The periods represented in the museum's collection covers the past 6000 years. The museums collections are divided into the following areas: American Decorative Arts; Costumes & Textiles; Art of Africa; Art of the Americas; Prints, Drawings and Watercolors; American Painting and Sculpture; European Painting and Sculpture; Classical and Near Eastern Art; Far Eastern Art; and Photography.
Some contemporary American art is also in the Cincinnati Museum of Art's collection.
The Cincinnati Museum of Art presents regular special exhibitions which are also open to the public. The museum's website lists exhibitions and has directions.
