Doing your best work and having the courage to share it with the world can be empowering and rewarding. Pride, confidence, and scholarships — this is what the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have been delivering to artists since 1923. This year, the Art Academy of Cincinnati is proud to produce the awards for our region, which will be held on our campus in historic Over-the-Rhine.
Let us see what you’ve got! There’s power in your portfolio. If you could distill its contents it would radiate pure possibility. It contains your purpose, your promise. Celebrate National Portfolio Day by showing yours off. We double-dog dare you. Get feedback from experienced college representatives, practice sharing your artist’s statement and get a taste of what attending a professional art program can be like.
On October 23rd, the Art Academy of Cincinnati is offering you an opportunity to transform yourself for the much ballyhooed return of the Beaux Arts Ball, a masquerade fundraiser of high art, high style and high spirits
Victoria College, University of Toronto. This was the fourth annual international conference on the emergent knowledge practices of the early-modern period (1450-1750). The major premise of this conference is that knowledge during the period of the Scientific Revolution was inherently interdisciplinary, involving complex mixtures of practices and objects which had yet to be separated into their modern “scientific” hierarchies. Ken’s paper, “Trancing the Macrocosm: The Influence of Renaissance Alchemical Philosophy on Eclectic Medicine”, is a continuation of his research surrounding the 1895 novel Etidorhpa, written by John Uri Lloyd, founder of Cincinnati’s Lloyd Library and Museum, and illustrated by John Augustus Knapp, who was a professor at the AAC in the late 19th century.
Ken’s abstract can be viewed on Scientiae’s website.
