An Amazing Campus in a Great City

Located in the heart of Cleveland’s cultural district, our campus offers the experience of a true artist’s community. Our neighbors, collaborators, and partners are on the creative edge of culture, technology, and education—and so are we. At CIA you will live in a mix of urban energy surrounded by University Circle, a park-like setting that houses the region’s most prestigious cultural, academic, technology, and health care organizations. Within two square miles are the world-renowned Cleveland Museum of Art, Case Western Reserve University, the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland Botanical Garden, Cleveland Orchestra, and dozens of museums, galleries, and ethnic neighborhoods.

Call Our Superb Art Facilities Your Home

We give all students their very own studio space once they declare a major—to customize with whatever inspires them most. You also will work in professional-level facilities designed and equipped specifically for your major, whether your department is located in our fantastic, state-of-the-art George Gund Building or the unique Joseph McCullough Center for the Visual Arts, a former Ford Model T factory. Our campus also houses the Jessica R. Gund Memorial Library and the Reinberger Galleries, the largest private exhibit space in Cleveland.
