Inspire, educate, and enrich Cincinnati by supporting the Annual Fund!
This was a banner year for awards at the Taft. The Ohio Museums Association presented the Museum with three awards in visual communication, and the Art for All project was chosen as the Best Education/Outreach program in Ohio. The Taft was also honored with one of the top six grants nationally, presented by the National Endowment for the Arts, for an international exhibition to be organized by the Taft in 2016.
The Taft brought masterpieces by de Hooch, Whistler, and others to more than 20,000 children and tens of thousands of adults last year. Our award-winning Artists Reaching Classrooms (ARC) program brought art students into contact with professional artists, drawing connections between the Taft’s collection and their own art. Each year the talented young artists exhibit their work at the downtown branch of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. Last year, the Association of Art Museum Directors selected two pieces by ARC students for display at the Department of Education in Washington, D.C.
Every day at the Taft, great works in the permanent collection and special exhibitions can move you, drawing you in through their dynamic energy.
Your generous support helps the Taft create stronger connections with the community and share the gift of art with people of all ages. Your tax-deductible gift inspires, educates, and enriches the region for everyone. A gift to the Annual Fund is the key to our success for years to come. As one student commented, “ARC gave me the opportunity to practice public speaking skills and utilize my knowledge of art. In school, there are very limited situations when we can speak to a group about something that truly interests us.”
On behalf of everyone at the Taft Museum of Art, thank you for your generous support.
