Real Style: CAC Opening


Contemporary fashion meets contemporary art

By Joy Kraft
The Cincinnati Enquirer

There was no problem getting people downtown Saturday for the preview of the Lois & Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art.

What they wore to the opening
The music was booming on tented, blocked-off Walnut Street, and the bartenders were frenzied as folks snaked along lines for tours of the knockout building by Zaha Hadid.

So what if the stairs looked crooked - even to the sober - and nobody could find the bathrooms?

There was art everywhere, from the angled gallery walls and zany-striped performance artists Kapoot to French artist Marie-Ange Guilleminot, wordlessly walking the halls and stairs as Oursin, the sea urchin. Gentlemen in black tie, 5-year-olds in Sunday ruffles, a sea of black and everyone with a wrap or coat, Cincinnati was celebrating.
