As the world sets its eyes and ears on Cincinnati for the World Choir Games, this exhibit will showcase musical instruments from across the globe, selected from the permanent collection of the Cincinnati Art Museum. The total museum collection includes more than 800 pieces, making it one of the largest and most comprehensive in the country. It spans four continents, four centuries, and more than 30 musical cultures. Some instruments display new, exquisite inlay work, some are painted with beautiful designs, and others are carved with intricate detail. The instruments, numbering more than 100, will be placed in context with paintings, prints, photography, and ceramics from the Art Museum’s collection. An interactive element, developed specifically for this exhibition, will allow visitors to hear and see several of the instruments in use. More info: www.cincinnatiartmuseum.org.
