More projects are on the horizon for the Cincinnati Art Museum, which recently completed the first phase of its highly anticipated Art Climb — a nine-story zig-zagging flight of stairs connecting the intersection of Eden Park Drive and Gilbert Avenue to its grounds, flanked on either side by greenery as it weaves through a hillside. 

Their next project, which has begun construction and is slated to be completed in November, focuses on rebuilding the parking lot and arrival court at the front of the museum's plaza. Plans include adding an ADA-accessible path to connect the lot to the Art Climb landing, in addition to creating a basin beneath the parking space that will support water runoff.

According to a press release from the CAM, in addition to the above, they will also be adding art pieces from Hamilton's Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park to the Art Climb over the next few months. 

During the duration of the construction, the front parking lot will be closed and guests will be asked to park in the rear lot or at the bottom of the Art Climb when visiting.

“This is an exciting project that will completely change the front of the museum. While the next three months will consist of some logistical hurdles, the Board agreed with us that there will never be a better time to complete this project,” said Dave Linnenberg, Cincinnati Art Museum’s chief administrative officer, in the press release.
