AAC 150th Anniversary
The Art Academy of Cincinnati (AAC) is a community of radiant, radical, forward-thinking artists and designers who have helped mold the creative landscape for 150 years.
The legacy of the Art Academy can be seen all over Cincinnati. It has provided life-changing experiences to many artists and designers, who have in turn made a difference in the city and beyond. We celebrate the seers, radicals and innovators and helped establish some of the most influential artists of their times, from Maria Longworth, and Charley Harper to Thom Shaw and Petah Coyne.
This year we will share our bold past while planning our innovative future. We are proud to celebrate our 150th anniversary with a new full-color book and launch party. We look forward to engaging the community in ways we never have before.
We have big plans… stay tuned.

Art, design, and creative fields have changed since 1869, it has changed in the last decade. The Art Academy is changing too.
We are building on our history to evolve into the new generation of creative thinkers, contemporary artists, and visionaries. We have plans to renovate our campus infrastructure while adding exciting new innovative programs and majors. We will build partnerships with businesses and open our doors to the community, and we will change the creative landscape in Cincinnati and beyond.
The Art Academy intends to keep the best creative minds here in the city and make Cincinnati a destination for talent around the country and the world. We think Cincinnati is the best city in the country, the Art Academy intends to be the best small private art college in the country.
We will be the future.
