At least five CIA faculty members held residencies at prestigious art centers around the world in the summer of 2010.
It was a productive summer: Cleveland Institute of Art faculty members had artists residencies from France to Cape Cod to Utah.
Amanda Almon, department head and associate professor of Biomedical Art, and Megan Ehrhart, assistant professor of T.I.M.E.-Digital Arts, had a joint artists’ residency at the Performing Arts Forum in St. Erme, France in June, working on a collaborative film. The film was shot at a historic French convent and debuted this fall in Cleveland. Almon and Ehrhart gave a visiting artist lecture at Macromedia University in Munich, Germany in June with former CIA faculty member Jurgen Faust. While there they critiqued the work of more than 15 international students studying animation and interactive media.
Amy Casey ’99, the project coordinator for CIA's Reinberger Galleries, was the only visual artist from Ohio chosen by the Ohio Arts Council for its sponsored summer residency at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA.
Barry Underwood, department head and assistant professor of film, video, and photographic arts, may be going for a record of most consecutive summer residencies served. He had artists residencies this past summer at the Center for Land Use Interpretation in Wendover, UT [pictured above] and at Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, CA. In recent years, he has had residencies in Alberta, Connecticut, and California.
Charles Tucker, department head and associate professor of sculpture, had a two-month artist residency this summer at Art Farm in Marquette, NE where he built a site-specific work.
