Are you ready to dance like an Egyptian at the Cincinnati Art Museum this weekend?

Art After Dark: Dance like an Egyptian is happening this Friday Mar 30 from 5-9 p.m. at the Cincinnati Art Museum (953 Eden Park Dr Cincinnati). This event is free admission and no registration is required!

Enjoy a silent disco in the Great Hall with live performances from Pones! Take an interactive tour of ‘Cagnacci: Painting Beauty and Death’ from Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park Off the Grid program. Cash bars, food for purchase and access to the museum after hours will make this an unforgettable evening!

Tesla will also be showcasing their fully electric vehicles during the event. Guests will be able to explore our Model X / S first hand outside near the front entrance.

‘Cagnacci: Painting Beauty and Death’ will be viewable through June 17. Guido Cagnacci’s Death of Cleopatra, painted in oil on a canvas over five feet wide, will be the centerpiece of this tightly focused exhibition. The painting, which normally hangs in the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan, is one of Cagnacci’s most intriguing and important works. This exhibition will introduce museum visitors to a great Italian painter little known outside his homeland, and present a painting as beautiful and provocative today as it was in the middle of the seventeenth century, when it was made.
