Founded in Cincinnati in 1939 as the Modern Art Society by three visionary local women, the Contemporary Arts Center was one of the first institutions in the United States dedicated to exhibiting contemporary art. The CAC provides the opportunity for all people to discover the dynamic relationship between art and life by exhibiting, but not collecting, the work of progressive artists.

With three floors of ever-changing world-class art exhibitions, there is something for everyone at the CAC including The UnMuseum—an entire floor dedicated to family-friendly interactive art and artmaking; a lobby area that is free and open to the public, with rotating lobby art installations; and the CAC Store which is open 7 days a week.
