Program
Julie Aronson, Curator of American Painting, Sculpture and Drawings at the Cincinnati Art Museum presented the program, illustrated by a Powerpoint of the watercolors owned by the museum. She discussed some of the unique features of the CAM collection.
After the talk we were divided into small groups to tour the museum, led by the CAM docents. Unfortunately watercolors were not on display, since they have been put away for a major exhibition that will be held in 2014 and have already started the process used for the catalog illustrations.
