This Week At Home - 4.30.20May 01, 2020We have positive news as Governor DeWine has recently announced a plan for the reopening of some medical offices and commercial businesses in the coming weeks, which will start to bring back a sense of normalcy. As we learn more about this multi-phase plan, I am looking forward to visiting my favorite shops, restaurants, and attractions as more businesses open in the near future.
While schools and museums remain closed, there are still plenty of educational and cultural experiences to be had outdoors. The ArchiTour App created by the Architectural Foundation of Cincinnati offers a fun and engaging walking tour of historic places in Downtown Cincinnati. The Fourth and Fifth Street tour includes over 60 locations, including the gorgeous University Club building at 401 E. Fourth Street. Learn some Cincinnati architectural history while getting some steps in during this springtime weather.
Speaking of steps, the Cincinnati Art Museum is providing a virtual tour of the “Art Climb,” the latest addition to the museum. Currently under construction, the Art Climb features a grand staircase leading from Gilbert Avenue in Walnut Hills to the front entrance of the museum. To take the virtual tour led by the museum’s Chief Administrative Officer Dave Linnenberg, click here.
Every year, the Taft Museum of Art celebrates the artwork of local high school students with a special exhibition. This year’s show will be a bit different, but the artistic achievements of these students can still be enjoyed by the community. The exhibition, Artists Reaching Classrooms, will be displayed virtually on the Taft Museum of Art’s Facebook page. Take a look at the artwork created by very talented students, from photography and digital art to painting and ceramics.
