Cincinnati Art Museum Addresses World Hunger

DRAW: Here, There and Everywhere Cincinnati Art Museum Addresses World Hunger June 4, 2011- August 28, 2011

This summer the Cincinnati Art Museum is trying something new! For the first time, they have created a special exhibition addressing a major world issue – hunger with DRAW: Here, There and Everywhere. Through the grouping of objects from across cultures and time periods, around the central theme of food, this exhibition addresses the issue of world hunger and man’s obsession with food, having it, not having. Special summer programming will encourage visitors to this special exhibition to view, react and then act.

DRAW: Here, There and Everywhere is generously supported by LPK.

THE SPORTSMAN: Unexpected Lessons From An Around-The-World Sports Odyssey, an evening with Dhani Jones

Thursday, June 23 – 7pm

Dhani Jones, power packed linebacker for the Cincinnati Bengals and host of Travel Channel’s Dhani Tackles the Globe, is no stranger to extreme adventure and sports. In his first book, THE SPORTSMAN: Unexpected Lessons From An Around-The-World Sports Odyssey, Dhani reveals the lessons he’s learned—as an athlete and global adventurer—that have made him tougher, smarter and stronger than ever. THE SPORTSMAN shows how traveling the world and competing in such unique ways actually helped cross-train Dhani (both mentally and physically), giving him the edge it took to become a better football player and better man. THE SPORTSMAN is a travelogue infused with workout tips and adventurous stories, it is a reminder that by connecting to the world through its people and customs and the spirit of competition, we empower ourselves in ways that can surpass even our craziest expectations.

This talk is being presented in conjunction with the special exhibition DRAW: Here, There and Everywhere which looks at world hunger through the lens of the Art Museum’s permanent collection. All proceeds from this event will go to Cincinnati Food Bank and the Cincinnati Art Museum.
