If you had tickets for Cher’s canceled Cincinnati concert on April 7 (or even if you didn't!) you can still get an up-close look at some of the music icon’s glittering and glamorous costumes at BCM and right here on this website.

Behringer-Crawford's newest exhibit, "From Rituals to Runways: The Art of the Bead," celebrates the art and integral roles that beads have played in society over the centuries, from prayer and devotion, to art, fashion and décor. They've been made from wood and stone, bone and tooth, glass, plastic and gemstones - all of which are represented in the exhibit. A highlight is a display of four of Cher’s dazzling beaded outfits.  

Take an up-close look at BCM's newest exhibit from the comfort of home!
