The Center for Contemporary Arts in Cincinnati moved to its first free-standing home in 2003 which was designed by Zaha Hadid. The CAC chose to honor two of its major donors by naming the building the Lois and Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art. The Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art was Zaha Hadid’s first American project. Hailed by the New York Times Architecture Critic Herbert Muschamp as “the most important American building to be completed since the cold war” the CAC is a non-collecting museum that focuses on new developments in painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, performance art and new media. Remaining committed to 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.
