The Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) is a contemporary art museum in Cincinnati, Ohio and one of the first contemporary art institutions in the United States. The CAC is a non-collecting museum that focuses on new developments in painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, performance art and new media. Focusing on programming that reflects "the art of the last five minutes", the CAC has displayed the works of many now-famous artists early in their careers, including Andy Warhol. In 2003, the CAC moved to a new building designed by the late Zaha Hadid.

  • I love this place. Receptionist was helpful, friendly and patient. The manager was as well. My membership card had expired but we are now active again. You guys really rock !!! Some acts of kindness can't be taught. Thank you guys again.
  • Beautiful art show they held there. The 4th floor outside area is an amazing little spot for some awesome views also
