Student Art Show

2020 Student Art Show is Postponed

Originally Scheduled: May 1 – 10, 2020

Due to the evolving impact of the coronavirus, directives from Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, and the recommendations of government and health officials, the Cincinnati Arts Association’s (CAA) Education and Community Engagement Department has made the difficult decision to postpone its annual Student Art Show for 2020. The Cincinnati Arts Association is committed to the health and safety of all of our guests, staff, artists and volunteers at the Aronoff Center and Music Hall; this is our top priority. We continue to closely monitor the global impact of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation, and will continue to make decisions based on changing conditions.
