Cleveland Institute of Art is one of the nation's leading accredited independent colleges of art and design. For more than 130 years, the college has been an educational cornerstone in Cleveland, Ohio, and produces graduates competitive as studio artists, designers, photographers, contemporary craftsmen, and educators. CIA welcomes group tours of high school students, colleges, and other organizations interested in learning more about our academic programs.
Group tours are led by CIA student ambassadors, Monday – Friday at 10AM and 2PM, and typically last 1 hour. The tour will highlight our 15 majors, facilities, and gallery space. We cannot accommodate group tours of our residence hall.
To begin the process of setting up a group tour, please complete the tour request form and indicate up to three preferred visit dates. Please note: Group tour reservations are required at least 2 weeks in advance and completing the request form does not guarantee a group tour. We will attempt to accommodate your first preferred visit date, and will follow up by email to confirm your tour once the request has been approved.
Guests should be aware in advance that they will be on the campus of a college of art and design and that they may be exposed to concepts, images, language, and ideas which they find challenging and which some viewers may find objectionable, including but not limited to nude figures. All visitors under the age of 18, must complete the attached parental consent form prior to their visit. (Group tour permission form)
We look forward to having you and your guests on campus!
