For Immediate Release
Contact: Karen Sandstrom

CLEVELAND (Ohio) – From July 15 through July 22, 2016, the Cleveland Institute of Art will restrict activities and building access in consideration of activities around the Republican National Convention.

During this time, onsite staffing will be reduced to employees who must be on campus for CIA’s Pre-College summer program for high school students, or for other site-specific work.

CIA’s adult education courses and pay-as-you-go life drawing classes are canceled for the week beginning July 18. Registered students will be notified of options regarding make-up classes or a partial tuition reimbursement.

Pre-College classes for high school students will continue as scheduled.

The Office of Admissions and the Office of Financial Aid will contact visitors scheduled during the period of July 15-22 to determine if alternate arrangements can be made. All Pre-college portfolio reviews on July 18, 19 and 20 will proceed as scheduled.

The Office of Admissions and the Office of Financial Aid will not accept walk-in appointments July 15-22.

The CIA galleries (including Reinberger Gallery) will be closed to the public from July 15 through July 24. The opening of the exhibition Kari Russell-Pool: Perspective has been postponed, and the new exhibition dates are July 25 through August 12.

In addition, the CIA library will be closed.

The CIA Cinematheque will be open. From July 15 through July 22, Cinematheque patrons must enter the building through Entrance C (off Lot 73). Entrance C will be open one hour before the start of each film. Vending machines will be inaccessible to filmgoers. Click here for a film schedule.

Founded in 1882, the Cleveland Institute of Art is an accredited, independent college of art and design committed to nurturing the intellectual, artistic and professional development of students and community members through rigorous visual arts and design education. The Institute offers 15 undergraduate majors, from the visual arts and craft to design and digital arts. It extends its programs to the public through gallery exhibitions, lectures, a continuing education program, and the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque, a nationally acclaimed art and independent film program.
