Focusing on race, sexuality, gender, and other contemporary cultural issues, “30 Americans” is an ambitious exhibition at the Cincinnati Art Museum that features artworks from many of the most important African-American artists of the last three decades. Opening March 19 and on view through August 28, the exhibition “highlights a wide range of cultural backgrounds and life experiences as expressed by artists such as Nick Cave, Kara Walker, Kehinde Wiley, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mickalene Thomas, and Glenn Ligon,” the museum reports. “‘30 Americans’ offers visitors an opportunity to engage in dialogue with the art and with each other. A community day to celebrate the show’s opening will be held on Saturday, April 2. In addition, every Sunday during the run of the show, the CAM will host events dedicated to exploring the themes in the exhibition, starting March 20 at 2 P.M.”
