For over 130 years, the Cleveland Institute of Art has produced amazing artists and designers. How do we know? Our graduates have produced artwork that can be viewed at some of the world’s most prestigious art museums. And, we’re sure at some point, you have used a product that one of our design alums has created.

As a CIA graduate you will also have an opportunity to join CIA’s Alumni Association, where as a member, you have access to a variety of resources to help jump-start or further your career. You can reconnect with fellow alums at events held throughout the year.
