Cincinnati Camouflage

Opening soon at the Art Academy of Cincinnati: An exhibition titled SEAGOING EASTER EGGS: Artists' Contributions to Dazzle Ship Camouflage at the Convergys Gallery at 1212 Jackson Street beginning January 15, 2010, through February 12.

It includes photographs, camouflage diagrams, ship models and other historic artifacts that pertain to the contributions of artists to World War I US naval camouflage, particularly dazzle camouflage.

As the exhibit's curator, I will lecture on the subject at 7:00 pm, Thursday, January 28 in the Proctor and Gamble Lecture Hall, an event sponsored by the Cincinnati AIGA. On the following day, Friday, January 29, there will also be a reception in the gallery from 5:00 to 9:00 pm. The exhibit is free and open to the public during gallery hours: Mon-Fri 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, and Sat-Sun 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
