Exhibitions . About Reinberger Gallery
CIA's Reinberger Gallery supports the creative work of professional artists by providing quality exhibition opportunities. It also serves CIA students, faculty and the community as an educational resource, and particularly to encourage artistic growth and experimentation through well-presented exhibitions, events and lectures.
The faculty show is a unique tradition at the Cleveland Institute of Art when artists of disparate practices are brought together to exhibit in one unifying gallery space. Their work varies radically in form and content, and we are always pleasantly surprised when flickering instances of formal and critical harmonies emerge.
While this year has been a challenging and divisive one in this country, we are reminded of the importance of community, where collaboration is invited, and criticism is encouraged. Cleveland Institute of Art faculty have a long history of being trailblazers and catalysts for change--seeking new ways of seeing and representing the world around them through innovative processes, techniques, and theoretical practices.
This year's exhibition offers opportunities for intimate reflection and thoughtful consideration. Though their strategies and practices may differ, the collective atmosphere is ultimately one of the profound optimism and collegiality. It is our hope that this show sets the tone for the course for the year as we meet new challenges in the days to come.

African American Works on Paper included over 75 pieces of art, including prints, watercolors, drawings, and mixed media, produced by 64 artists, many of whom have gained national and international recognition but remain excluded or marginalized within most artistic canons. Gems of the Cochran Collection include Revolt on the Amistad (1989) by Jacob Lawrence, one of the most important artists of the 20th century. African American Works on Paper ran from March 31 through May 13.
