While you’re downtown enjoying a ride on the new Carol Ann Carousel, be sure to swing by the Taft Museum of Art (316 Pike St.) and explore the exhibit From Studio to Carousel: The Whimsical World of Jonathan Queen.
The exhibit, open through Sept. 6, features Queen’s studies for the carousel paintings, clay models for the animals, and other carousel-related works. Cost is $4 – $10, and free for children younger than 4. Admission is free on Sundays. Visit taftmuseum.org or call 513-241-0343.
