New CIA building taking shape; set for December completion
Paintings by CIA-affiliated artists in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art reflect the history of both CIA itself and 20th-century art movements. The oldest such work was created in 1882, the year CIA taught its first handful of students in founder Sarah Kimball’s living room.
Myriad techniques, styles, and subject matters characterize what came to be known as “the Cleveland School” during those years. In Pioneers of Modernism: Post-Impressionism in Cleveland, 1908-1913, Henry Adams and Lawrence Waldman view this diversity as a salient strength that colored Cleveland art during the early 20th century, largely due to encouragement from open-minded CIA faculty members like Henry Keller and Frank Nelson Wilcox, both of whom were alumni and frequent May Show winners.
