For the Taft historic house's bicentennial year, discover renewed insights into our storied collection in our Fifth Third Gallery, with our community partners, and online. Exhibitions change seasonally and offer a variety of informative or interactive events and programs.
In a New Light explores a broad range of eras, cultures, and art forms through their historical context, subject matter, materials, and makers. European decorative arts and Chinese porcelains dazzle the eye with their intricate designs and brilliant colors. Nineteenth-century American furniture impresses us with its stately elegance. European and American portraits and landscape paintings show off the mastery of some of the greatest artists of the past. Through select works, the exhibition will reveal centuries-old social concerns such as the distribution of wealth, environmental destruction, and gender and racial inequality.
