Smart Return to School

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, the Cleveland Institute of Art has been planning for maintaining a healthy environment when our community returns to campus this fall. We're working in partnership and consultation with the office of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, University Hospitals of Cleveland, Case Western Reserve University, the Cuyahoga County Health Department, the City of Cleveland, and the Centers for Disease Control.

Our current plans, while still in development, can be viewed here: September 15 update
