Food Not Bombs

Add event to my calendar

Cleveland Institute of Art first-year student Chelsea Polk will be exhibiting/presenting her final project for the "Charette: Self and Other Voices" class at a benefit for the organization Food Not Bombs on Friday, Nov. 29, at 8pm, at the Doubting Thomas Gallery, 856 Jefferson Avenue in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood. The event will feature art, live music, and vegan food.

Polk's work includes engaging two models (both fellow first-year students) for a performance during the event, a series of photos, and a sculptural installation, all speaking to the issue of "slut-shaming" in contemporary culture. She has been using a studio workspace at the gallery to construct the sculptural work on-site.

“Chelsea developed all of this connection activity herself and has been taking the bus from CIA to the gallery and workspace,” said her instructor, Barbara Chira, academic director of Cores + Connections. “This is a marvelous example of initiative and networking, especially for a first-year student.”
