Star Power: Edward Steichens Glamour Photography

I checked out the “Star Power: Edward Steichens Glamour Photography” exhibit a few weeks ago and wrote about it here. And then in this week’s “Staycation” issue of Cincy Chic, we featured this exhibit and a bunch of other fun things to do in the Tri-State with those vacation days you need to use up before the end of the year.

So, I just wanted to remind you that this exhibit is limited (ends January 27, 2013). You can see it Tuesday-Friday, 11a-4p; Saturday-Sunday 11a-5p with free admission on Sundays.

In case you don’t know, Edward Steichen was already a famous painter and photographer on both sides of the Atlantic, when he was offered the position of chief photographer for Condé Nast’s influential and highly-regarded magazines, Vogue and Vanity Fair. For the next fifteen years, Steichen would take full advantage of the resources and prestige conferred by the Condé Nast empire to produce an oeuvre of unequalled brilliance, putting his exceptional talents and prodigious energies to work dramatizing and glamorizing contemporary culture and its achievers – Fred Astaire, Clara Bow, Winston Churchill, Gary Cooper, Joan Crawford, Marlene Dietrich, Katherine Hepburn, Paul Robeson, Gloria Swanson, and Walter Winchell.

It’s one of the most impressive photography exhibits I’ve ever seen, and I know you’ll love it – especially if you’re a fashionista like me! So, definitely check it out before the exhibit ends in January! Here are a few more details you might need:

The Taft Museum of Art
316 Pike Street
Cincinnati, Ohio 45202

Ticket Price: Adults/$10; Seniors 60 and older/$8; Students and Teachers/$8; Youth 12-17/$4; Children under 11/Free; Free parking is available in Taft’s onsite garage.

“Re:Sign” to Help this Wednesday at Japp’s!

My friend Britt Born and her co-hort Stephanie Cornett will be throwing an event at Japps this Wednesday, November 14, from 4-9pm called “Re:Sign to Help.”

The purpose of the event is to bring in your old campaign yard signs! They will then take the yard signs and convert them into weather-proof blankets for homeless people to be distributed at the Fall Feast later this month. Repurposed campaign signs will be donated to City Gospel Mission.

Bring in your old campaign signs for this great cause and you’ll get $5 hot totties, $2 Yuengling and tasty treats from Mayberry.

And if you can’t make it Wednesday, no worries! You can stay tuned for more details as the movement progresses. Volunteers are also needed throughout the course of this event! You can email Stephanie here or Britt here for more information!
