Figuratively Speaking is a group exhibition from the Cleveland Institute of Art's Illustration Department that focuses on the human form and serves as an exploration in drawing. It will be on view March 22–31 in the Ann and Norman Roulet Student + Alumni Gallery.

Many of the works are based on short studies and spontaneous experimentations from life, encouraging bold mark making. A particular study incorporated was “right side of the brain” drawing, including opposite hand, blind and semi-blind drawings. These observational practices heighten our awareness to truly see form. A collection of 107 works by 40 artists showcase a variety of mixed media on paper, including alternative tools and customized street markers such as Molotow, Krink,Tombow and Tempera paint pens.

Building safety measures restrict access to the Ann and Norman Roulet Student + Alumni Gallery to CIA students, staff and faculty only. This exhibition is not open to the public.
