House Party at Taft Museum

Start the weekend early.

Open invite. Crash at our house after work and explore our home. Bring your crew or come solo—there’s something for everyone. We’ll keep the lights on for you!

Escape the hustle. Chill and have a cocktail and light bites. Discover our secret garden in the heart of downtown while listening to local musicians.

Be inspired. Tap into your creative side by checking out the galleries and making your own work of art. Not an artist? No worries. We’ll guide you through the steps.

Free parking is NOW AVAILABLE on-site at the Taft’s garage, first-come-first-serve basis. For additional parking suggestions and other nearby garages, check out Best Parking for nearby garages. The closest Red Bike stations are at P&G and Sawyer Point, and the closest streetcar station is Station 2 at 4th and Main.


Thursday, February 13
5 – 8 pm

Getting a headstart on the Hallmark holiday (a.k.a. Valentine’s Day), the Taft Museum of Art invites everyone to toast to their love of Cincinnati for this month’s House Party for a night-full of local love:

💜 Learn how to screenprint with DIY Printing and walk away with a custom shirt celebrating our Historic House’s Bicentennial year

💜 Enjoy specialty cocktails at the cash bar, complimentary coneys thanks to Skyline Chili (while supplies last) and Graeter’s Ice Cream (for purchase, cash only)

💜 Be inspired by the newest special exhibition, N. C. Wyeth | New Perspectives (opening February 8) and Journey to Freedom: Art Quilts by Cynthia Lockhart (on view through March 15)
