The Contemporary Arts Center is a non-collecting institution. Without a permanent collection, all exhibitions on view are temporary and ever-changing. Although from time to time we might host exhibitions that contain some mature content, the UnMuseum is a consistent, family-friendly space that is always open and suitable for all audiences at all times. There truly is something for everyone at the CAC. We encourage anyone who has questions about the exhibitions currently on view, to call 513.345.8400 for more information.

  • Extended policy: Items over the size of an 8.5 x 11.5 sheet of paper, as well as large coats and jackets with buttons and zippers, are prohibited in the gallery spaces (thru 09/11/2016)
