For Immediate Release: February 15, 2010

CLEVELAND: The Cleveland Institute of Art, a premier college of art and design, will host a free public reception on Friday, February 26, from 6-9pm to celebrate the opening of its 64th Annual Student Independent Exhibition (SIE 64). Organized and curated entirely by students, this juried exhibition of emerging young talent showcases an eclectic mix of art, design and craft.

The opening reception will feature food, drinks and a live DJ, along with a preview of students’ fresh, energetic work. On last year’s opening night, guests were greeted by a remote-controlled skunk and had the opportunity to explore the insides of a giant dissectible frog or wander the gallery with a friend wearing connected Siamese twin sweaters.


Each year, SIE offers an opportunity for students in all majors to showcase their talent, creativity and passion in media ranging from painting to sculpture to video work. The exhibition also offers art appreciators and supporters of emerging artists the opportunity to acquire unique works for their own collections.

Students from all of the Institute’s departments were invited to submit works to a jury of nationally recognized artists: Dario Robleto (San Antonio), Pascual Sisto (Los Angeles) and 1998 Institute alumna Christa Donner (Chicago). The jurors will lead a panel discussion on Friday, February 19 from 4-5:30pm, offering insight for students of all ages who are about to enter the professional world of art and design.

The exhibition will be on view from February 26 until April 3, 2010, in the Institute’s Reinberger Galleries.
