CIA’s Bruce Checefsky is your wry art tour guide in "Gallery Guy"

The director of Reinberger Gallery at the Cleveland Institute of Art is the host of “Gallery Guy,” a short-video series highlighting artists and exhibitions. The episodes offer viewers context for looking at art. They’re one way Checefsky hopes to break down the intimidation factor of contemporary art.
