Children of Mars
Photography courtesy of the Taft Museum
In celebration of their 80th anniversary, the  Taft Museum of Art  presents ART FOR ALL which brings the Taft collection to area communities including Bellevue!  Eighty framed reproductions of paintings from the Taft Museum will adorn outdoor spaces around the Cincinnati metropolitan area from June through September.

The program commemorates Charles and Anna Taft's gift of their home and art to the people of the region in 1932. As the Tafts stated in their deed of gift, "We desire to devote our collection of pictures, porcelains, and other works of art to the people of Cincinnati in such a manner that they may be readily available to all."  Modeled after successful programs launched by the Tate Gallery in London and the Detroit Institute of Arts, ART FOR ALL strives to give back to the community that has generously supported the Taft over the past 80 years as well as to make some new friends.

See the installation of "Children of Mars" by Léonard Limosin located at Healing Therapy - 405 Fairfield Avenue.

ART FOR ALL is generously sponsored by The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation.
