Heart of the Art: CAC exhibits Keith Haring pop art

UPDATE: We moved ... Come follow us to

Cincinnati's Contemporary Arts Center in downtown is designed by Zaha Hadid.

The Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) in downtown Cincy offers free admission, starting at 5 p.m. on Mondays. I recently took advantage of that freebie and toured the iconic pop art exhibit of Keith Haring. Where much of Haring's work is for mature audiences, it was amusing to witness a group of high school students react to those images. Also on display was Rosson Crow's uncanny American motorcycles exhibit. Both Haring and Rosson produced some extraordinary works; however, I enjoy the CAC's architecture as much as the exhibits. The ultra contemporary building is itself a work of art. It's the perfect setting for special events that have included a sneaker designer's launch party. For anyone who appreciates uncanny art, the CAC might be for you -- it's certainly for me!!
