“. . . I organized this exhibition of American artists working on a monumental scale to reflect the fact that the Contemporary Arts Center has taken on a new air, an extended vision, a positive reality. This new Center with the present exhibition is indeed a reflection of thirty years of dedicated knowledgeable people who chose to pursue the new and the avant-garde in all the arts. This thirty years of the Center mark the beginning and a renewal of its promise to bring the best and the newest of the arts to Cincinnati” (William A Leonard, Monumental Art).
