Behringer-Crawford Museum features the photographic series Flags by Brad Austin Smith. This 30-image series is an intimate look at the presence of the American flag within the cultural construct of Cincinnati and its neighboring communities. Intrigued by both the diversity of display and the specific intimacy that the American flag holds for the individuals he encountered, Smith worked to capture the personal essence of each subject and their connection to such a powerful symbol. 

The photographer divides his time between fine art and commercial photography. Smith's photographs have been exhibited internationally, and his work is part of numerous collections, including the Cincinnati Art Museum. He opened his own studio in 1987 and continues to work in commercial, editorial, and event photography, as well as fine art. Brad Austin Smith, 1983-2000 serves as a 17-year retrospective of his work.

Set amongst the rolling hills of 700-acre Devou Park, the Behringer-Crawford Museum strives to enrich the Greater Cincinnati community in the preservation of local history and arts. Themed exhibits and multiple interactive education programs and activities provide fun, interactive, and entertaining connections to families and children throughout our region. Set in a 20,000 square foot historic space in Covington, the Behringer-Crawford Museum is a center for the collection, presentation, study, and enjoyment of our natural, cultural, and visual and performing arts heritage.
