Cincinnati Art Museum's Schmidlapp Gallery Wins Cincinnati Design Award

Cincinnati Art Museum's Schmidlapp Gallery won a Cincinnati Design Award for it's interior architecture! The museum's Director, Cameron Kitchin, shares his thoughts on the renovation: “This project has been in the making since 1907. The new Schmidlapp Gallery borrows from the best of our installations over time. It is a rethinking of not just the design, but the purpose of the space—why it exists in the architecture of the building and the pathway of the visitor experience.” Thank you to all who helped make this project so successful!
