Downtown (Cincinnati, Ohio)
The site of the Taft Art Museum dates back to the 1820s and is now a National Historic Landmark. Built in the Palladian Style, the building is one of the finest examples of Federal architecture in the country. The site also features murals by African American painter Robert S. Duncanson. Considered one of the most exceptional suites of domestic murals in the US, his famous work dates back from before the civil war.
With a Masterpiece around every corner, the lovely and historic Taft Museum of Art features two event spaces. The first, Luther Hall, features a cherry-paneled room with state-of-the-art audio/visual capabilities. Located in the new Museum wing, it is an attractive setting for luncheons and dinner. There is also an attached space for cocktails and hours d' oeuvres in the adjoining café area.
The Garden Tent on the brick terrace provides a lovely site for events and receptions. It is available May through October. Secluded behind the Museum, the tent adjoins a beautifully landscaped garden with an open lawn. This versatile space can accommodate many arrangements, and has room for a band and dance floor. Both areas abound with photo opportunities. Luther hall has a capacity of 75, and the garden tent can hold 200, making the Taft an excellent place for any size event.
