CLEVELAND (Ohio) – From July 15 through July 22, 2016, the Cleveland Institute of Art will restrict activities and building access in consideration of activities around the Republican National Convention.

STAFF
During this time, onsite staffing will be reduced to employees who must be on campus for CIA’s Pre-College summer program for high school students, or for other site-specific work.

CONTINUING EDUCATION
CIA’s adult education courses and pay-as-you-go life drawing classes are canceled for the week beginning July 18. Registered students will be notified of options regarding make-up classes or a partial tuition reimbursement.

Pre-College classes for high school students will continue as scheduled.

ADMISSIONS
The Office of Admissions and the Office of Financial Aid will contact visitors scheduled during the period of July 15-22 to determine if alternate arrangements can be made. All Pre-college portfolio reviews on July 18, 19 and 20 will proceed as scheduled.

The Office of Admissions and the Office of Financial Aid will not accept walk-in appointments July 15-22.

GALLERIES and LIBRARY

CIA CINEMATHEQUE

Founded in 1882, the Cleveland Institute of Art is an accredited, independent college of art and design committed to nurturing the intellectual, artistic and professional development of students and community members through rigorous visual arts and design education. The Institute offers 15 undergraduate majors, from the visual arts and craft to design and digital arts.
