About the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center
A Cincinnati Modern Arts Society was formed in 1939 and showcased modern art at the Cincinnati Art Museum. The name was changed in 1952 and a building was constructed in 1964 in downtown Cincinnati. The center’s newest location was built in 2003 by Zaha Hadid and was the first major US museum designed by a woman. The Lois and Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art has been called, “the best new building since the Cold War” by the NY Times.
