Three reasons to see 'Mark' at art museum



By Marilyn Bauer
The Cincinnati Enquirer

Three reasons to see Making Their Mark:

1. Another reason for civic pride, Making Their Mark: Drawings and Watercolors by Cincinnati Artists at Cincinnati Art Museum graphically depicts decades of Cincinnati talent. The exhibition, through Aug. 3, ranges from August Hervieu's 1830 watercolor "Cupid at a Rout at Cincinnati" to Mark Fox's 2003 drawing for "Dust," an installation on view in the Cincinnati Wing.

2. Living Cincinnati artists, underrepresented in the new wing, are seen here with excellent examples of their work. It can be said that Making Their Mark fulfills the wing's promise of providing a "history of art in the Queen City" in the 20th and 21st centuries.

3. Most of the 90 works have not been displayed in more than 30 years, offering visitors the chance to see a portion of the museum's collection of more than 2,000 Cincinnati drawings.
