21c Museum
609 Walnut St
Cincinnati, OH

21c was founded in 2006 by Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson, contemporary art collectors and preservationists who are committed to broadening public access to thought-provoking contemporary art through acquisitions, exhibitions, and innovative cultural programming. Now a multi-venue museum, 21c also organizes exhibitions and events in Bentonville, Durham, Lexington, Louisville, Oklahoma City, and soon, Nashville. As 21c has expanded, the permanent collection has grown, and now includes artworks from all over the world, in media ranging from found objects to digital generations, alongside painting, photography, sculpture, video, and performance. As seen in this selection of highlights from the collection, prevalent themes include portraiture and identity, politics and power, and the evolution and degradation of the environment. Artists both internationally known and emerging are represented in the 21c collection: Chuck Close, Anthony Goicolea, Dinh Q. Lê, and Zanele Muholi have been collected and exhibited by museums across the globe, while Ken Gonsales-Day, Gabriel Lester, Melanie Bonajo, and others are just stepping onto the world’s art stage.
