Five CIA students squared off against other local art students in a high-voltage competition at MOCA Cleveland.
Cleveland Institute of Art students faced off against teams from four other Northeast Ohio colleges in a high-voltage art competition at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Cleveland in September.
In the two-day competition, called “Another Vibrant Art Fight,” MOCA challenged students to make a collage installation in response to work by internationally-acclaimed artist collective “assume vivid astro focus.” The Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland State University, Kent State University, Oberlin College, and the University of Akron each sent a team to compete.
“This extraordinary project confirmed the wealth of young artistic talent in our region,” said Megan Lykins Reich, director of education and associate curator at MOCA. “It culminated in a spectacular unveiling event at which students, faculty, families, and community members demonstrated their ardent support for our local collegiate art programs.”
The Cleveland Institute of Art team included five students: sculpture majors Erin Duhigg ’11 and Patrick Tighe ’11, T.I.M.E.-digital arts major Michaela Lynch ’12, and painting majors Kyle Todaro ’12 and Nikki Woods ’12. See a large photo of their mural.
Each artist created an individual mural which was fused with teammates’ murals to create a collage of glam, kitsch, and popular culture. On September 29 the winner (University of Akron) was announced at an unveiling party to a crowd of 250, including fellow students and family members.
