Spend a lunch hour learning about the latest in art and design during these Friday lectures. Each lecture features a variety of artists and designers from around the world, including CIA faculty and visiting artists. This event is free and open to the public. Pizza and beverages will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
This week’s Lunch on Fridays highlights the cohort of the recent Creative Fusion Cuba/Cleveland exchange. Jewelry artist Yasniel Valdes and renowned artist Sandra Ramos (in residence at the Cleveland Print Room), will present artist talks addressing their respective practices. Michael Gill (of CAN Journal) will serve as our special guest translator for Yasniel.
The spring 2017 residency, Creative Fusion: Cuba Edition, was likely the first-of-its-kind exchange connecting cultural institutions of a major Midwestern city with a selection of celebrated Cuban artists for an extended project-based residency. The multidisciplinary cohort included internationally renowned artists showcasing the best in architecture, design, printmaking, photography/mixed media, the written word, ballet and modern dance.
