As part of African American History Month, the Cincinnati Art Museum is featuring an exhibit by famed artist Romare Bearden. During it's opening weekend (February 28-March 1), admission to Something Over Something Else will be free.

The work of an influential African American artist who grew up in New York City during the Harlem Renaissance is coming to Cincinnati. This is the first time in nearly 40 years Romare Bearden's historic Profile series has been reconstituted, and the Cincinnati Art Museum is one of only two places to host the exhibit.
