2019 Annual Conference

We are heading to the Queen City! The 46th Annual Conference of the Midwest Art History Society will be held from March 21–23, 2019, in beautiful Cincinnati, Ohio, where the stellar architecture, art collections and cultural sites will provide a captivating setting. Join us for thought-provoking sessions at the renowned Cincinnati Art Museum (CAM) on Thursday and Friday, March 21 and 22, and at the Taft Museum of Art on Saturday, March 23. On Thursday evening, join us for the keynote lecture given by S. Hollis Clayson, Bergen Evans Professor in the Humanities at Northwestern University, in association with CAM’s exhibition Paris 1900: City of Entertainment featuring works drawn from the collections of the City of Paris museums.

After sessions conclude on Friday, the Contemporary Arts Center in downtown Cincinnati will host an evening reception. Special behind-the-scenes programs at our partner museums will make this conference a particularly memorable experience, including tours of the newly renovated Union Terminal, an iconic Art Deco train station now home to the Cincinnati Museum Center.
