Happy 2018 everyone! We continually draw inspiration from the world around us, and there are so many places, spaces, and moments of great inspiration in Cincinnati and beyond. This coming year, instead of keeping those thousands of photos on our phones, we’re going to share them with you, giving you a glimpse of what inspires us and keeps us going, showing off our Queen City and other places, too.
With that being said, you only have THREE more days (through Sunday) to visit the Cincinnati Art Museum and check out the Iris van Herpen exhibit, Transforming Fashion. Her ability to merge artisanal craftsmanship with unexpected materials, processes (like shaping PET [what soda bottles are made of] with a heat gun and pliers), and technology is truly creative, everything avant-garde was ever intended to define, and downright phenomenal. If you still need convincing, this exhibit rivals McQueen’s “Savage Beauty” exhibit at the Met in 2011. It’s that good. And there’s even samples you can touch. Check out some of my favorite images below and get on over to the Art Museum!
