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:
