Cincinnati Museum Center Accredited by American Association of Museums

by The Cincinnati Team

 

Cincinnati Museum Center Accredited
by American Association of Museums 
 
For the first time, the Cincinnati Museum Center has gone through an extensive accreditation process.  It received accreditation by the American Association of Museums. They join 778 institutions around the country and other Cincinnati institutions, including the Cincinnati Art Museum, Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden and the Taft Museum of Art.
 
The Museum Center is one of only 16 institutions in the nation that has received this accreditation and the National Medal for Museum and Library Service.
 
Wondering how this accreditation process works?  The evaluation committee looks at governance, public programs, educational initiatives, collections stewardship, and strategic planning.  The Museum was particularly lauded for their children's programming and the new collaboration with the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.
Cincinnati Museum Centers' Culture Gallery will display Paul Briol's photos from October 1, 2012 - January 6, 2013. As part of FOTOFOCUS Cincinnati, an historical and aesthetical record of Cincinnati.  The photo below of downtown from Union Terminal is one of my favorites.

Briol is recognized for documenting the life and architecture of 20th century Cincinnati.  His prints were known for their detail, mastery of light and shadow and sense of composition.

Paul Briol came to Cincinnati in 1909.  He worked as a journalist, operated a photographic studio and owned a bookstore here until 1955, when he went to New York City.  We have to be grateful for his photographic legacy.
