Ever look at a work of art and think, “What’s going on here?” Or, “How does he/she do that?” Museum directors might have similar questions, and Cincinnati Art Museum Director Aaron Betsky will be asking them in ARTiculate, a series of programs featuring Cincinnati area artists beginning tonight in the Museum’s Fath Auditorium. Jimmy Baker, adjunct professor of fine arts at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, will be discussing with Betsky his paintings and mixed media works that center on technology, global power structures, historical events, architecture and the history of painting. Future guests will be Casey Riordan Millard, Stewart Goldman and Tony Luensman, on March 20, May 15 and July 17, respectively. 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16. Free for Art Museum members and Evenings for Educators participants, $5 for students, $10 for non-members. Reservations recommended. Cincinnati Art Museum, 953 Eden Park Drive, Mount Adams. 513-721-ARTS, cincinnatiartmuseum.org.
