Event: Art After Dark: Swingin' with Solway

The Cincinnati Art Museum honors the city’s most influential contemporary art dealer with Not in New York: Carl Solway and Cincinnati.

The Cincinnati Art Museum honors the city’s most influential contemporary art dealer with Not in New York: Carl Solway and Cincinnati. The exhibit title refers to a gallery Solway once operated on Fourth Street in addition to an eponymous space that’s now in the West End. For more than a half-century, Solway has introduced compelling works by the likes of Nam June Paik, John Cage, Pat Steir and Judy Pfaff to a Midwest audience, raising Cincinnati’s status in NYC art circles and beyond. The museum is showing more than 50 pieces from its own collection that have a direct connection to the gallerist. The exhibition officially opens Saturday, but swing by Friday for a preview and dancing to music from the 1950s and ’60s. Retro dress encouraged.


5-9 p.m. Friday. Free. Cincinnati Art Museum, 953 Eden Park Drive, Mount Adams, cincinnatiartmuseum.org
