Bentley, a rising senior in Sculpture + Expanded Media at the Cleveland Institute of Art, is excited to announce 2PINK4U?, a pop-up solo exhibition with large-scale tufted artworks that transform images of feminine fragility into badges of feminine strength. The artwork in the exhibition creates tokens of strength by recontextualizing gendered motifs, such as flowers and the color pink, by pairing them with empowering imagery.

2PINK4U? will be exhibited at Praxis Fiber Workshop, 15301 Waterloo Road, Cleveland, Ohio 44110. There will be an opening reception from 6 to 8 pm Friday, June 3. The exhibition also will be on view from noon to 4pm Sunday, June 5.

The exhibition is the capstone of Bentley’s project for Cleveland Institute of Art’s Creativity Works internship program. Creativity Works is a self-initiated internship program with the goal of supporting a student’s professional development. Participating students create proposals that align with their long-term professional goals.

The Creativity Works program is made possible by the generous support of the Fenn Educational Fund and the G.R. Lincoln Family Foundation.
