For three years the Cincinnati Museum Center has invited the community to participate as the water is turned on for the summer in its iconic fountain. Museum members and guests gathered Friday morning as the countdown began.
Sarah Bowman and her 2 1/2-year-old daughter Mimi of Fairfield waited patiently to the sounds of Jimmy Buffet music. Staff members passed out temporary tattoos to the children.
An important part of human history is now on display at the Cincinnati Museum Center. The exhibition Dead Sea Scrolls: Life and Faith in Ancient Times opened recently and will be in Cincinnati through mid-April. Dr. Risa Levitt Kohn, co-curator of this exhibition and professor of Hebrew Bible and Judaism at San Diego State University, recently sat down with Mark Perzel to discuss the importance of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, what visitors can expect to see when they visit, and the extreme care that is taken to preserve these artifacts.
