The 2010 NOISMaker award recognizes CIA Illustration Professor Dominic Scibilia for his contributions to the field in Northeast Ohio.
Professor Dominic Scibilia ’72, head of the Illustration Department, is the 2010 recipient of the annual NOISMaker Award presented by the Northern Ohio Illustrators Society.
NOIS president George Kocar presented Scibilia with the award November 11 at a gathering at the Joseph McCullough Center for the Visual Arts. Scibilia was honored for his contribution to the world of illustration in Northeast Ohio and for nurturing new generations of illustrators.
The NOISMaker typically recognizes individuals in advertising, publishing, teaching, and art direction who support the work of illustrators, said NOIS member Milan Kecman.
“I first met Dom over 30 years ago when he and Chuck Wimmer had a very successful art studio in the Old Arcade downtown,” Kecman said. “Dom is very deserving of this award.”
Scibilia, a 30-year member of the CIA faculty, credited longtime colleague Professor John Chuldenko, as well as Visiting Instructor Larry O'Neal, for the team approach the three have developed in educating new illustrators.
Scibilia has won numerous awards for his illustrations in advertising and editorial products over the decades. He continues to work as a freelance illustrator.
