Viva Italia and Antique Christmas—Cincinnati-style


Spent a wonderful afternoon last Sunday staying warm and dry inside the Taft Museum of Art with the latest exhibition, George Innes in Italy. (Sundays are free!) Innes’ Italian landscapes are warm and inviting, and the scenic paintings took my mind off the constant gray skies and misty rain waiting outside. This former home of Cincinnati notables is also dressed to the nines—and trumpeting its 10th year of holiday splendor. Antique and vintage collections of ornaments and Christmas décor fill several display areas in the galleries. We loved the Tootsie toy trucks, antique paper dolls, vintage Christmas cards and WWII-era striped glass ornaments. The dining room table was set in all its splendor with a beautiful collection of china, crystal and silver. Can’t wait to see what they find for next year.

The Taft Museum of Art is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 am-5 pm. The Innes exhibit runs through January 8. Antique Christmas will be on display through January 29.
