Funds will support the CIA Cinematheque, Continuing Education and Community Outreach, and Reinberger Gallery
Cleveland Institute of Art will receive $529,101 in 2019 from the taxpayers of Cuyahoga County through Cuyahoga Arts & Culture (CAC), the agency that administers county cigarette tax revenue earmarked for arts and culture grants.
The funds will support public programs at CIA, including the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque, an alternative film theater that shows classic, foreign, and independent films 50 weekends of the year; Continuing Education and Community Outreach, a program that offers dynamic art and design classes to educators, adults, and students in grades 5-12; and the Reinberger Gallery, an exhibition space that supports the creative work of artists and serves students, faculty, and the community as an educational resource.
The grant is part of $10.2 million in operating support that CAC approved last week. Cuyahoga County residents created Cuyahoga Arts & Culture in 2006, when they approved a tax on cigarettes to support arts and culture in our community.
