Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center:  Founded in 1939, the CAC was one of the first institutions in the United States dedicated to exhibiting contemporary art.  True to its roots, the museum continues to showcase “the art of the last five minutes.”  As the R&D arm of the art industry, this is where you can explore and discover new frontiers, be challenged by provocateurs and feed your creativity.  The museum’s Zaha Hadid-designed building sets the stage for the next generation of taste-makers.  Come to the CAC be a witness to history-in-the-making. The CAC provides many different ways to encounter contemporary art. Consistently voted a favorite by Cincinnati Magazine readers, the famous UnMuseum is an entire floor dedicated to play and interactive learning with the most innovative art of our time. The lobby is open 7 days a week for the public’s use, and the CAC Store (also open 7 days a week) offers shoppers the best wares in contemporary art and design from around the world and around the corner.
