CIA's 62nd Annual Student Independent Exhibition to Open February 15

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Institute of Art will host its 62nd annual Student Independent Exhibition (S.I.E.) in its Reinberger Galleries from February 15th through March 15th 2008. A juried exhibition of work created by current CIA students, S.I.E. represents an opportunity to showcase student talent, creativity and passion. It is sponsored by Prizm-The Artist's Supply Store.

The exhibition's opening reception, Friday, February 15, from 6-8 pm, is free and open to the public.

Students from all 16 majors offered at the Institute were invited to submit works for review by three jurors, each of whom is a professional contemporary artist. This year's jurors are Ryan Trecartin, Tobias Wong, and Beth Campbell. Trecartin, a 2004 graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, works in Philadelphia and is known for his surreal videos filled with outrageous actors and highly stylized digital sets. Wong is a New York-based artist/designer interested in the interplay between concept and beauty and in exposing similarities between art and design. Campbell, also of New York, uses a wide variety of media including quirky illustrated maps, to embrace future and infinite potential.

The jurors were chosen by the panel of students that organized all aspects of the exhibition, in keeping with a 62-year CIA tradition.
