Twenty-three Visual Arts students from the Cleveland Institute of Art are excited to announce Like Moths to ..., a multidisciplinary, student-curated exhibition that explores light.

Work in Like Moths to ... will examine different meanings of light, from a source of illumination to a categorization of weight or descriptor for emotion. Students considered what serves as a light or inspiration in their artistic practices and invite viewers to discover how that shines through in their work.

Like Moths to ... will be exhibited April 28–30 at The Hildebrandt Building (3619 Walton Ave., Cleveland). An opening reception will be held from 5 to 7pm Friday, April 28. Weekend hours are from noon to 5pm Saturday and Sunday, April 29–30. Mediums featured in Like Moths to ... include paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, glass, fibers and metal.
