Works from the Progressive Corporation's art collection, including several by CIA artists, are on view at the Maltz Museum in spring 2011.
A new exhibition at the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage features works by Cleveland Institute of Art alumni Susan Umbenhour ’95 and Myoung Ho Lee ’92, and CIA Visiting Instructor Royden Watson (Foundation and Painting). They are among more than 80 CIA alumni, staff, faculty, or former faculty who are represented in the art collection of the Progressive Corporation, which provided the art for this exhibition.
About the Right of Being Different: The Art of Diversity and Inclusion at Progressive presents contemporary art that explores themes of diversity, prejudice, and tolerance as seen through the eyes of artists. Echoing the museum’s focus on diversity and outreach, the works provoke tough questions about personal viewpoints that challenge and enlighten visitors. The show is on view April 1 to June 26, 2011, at the Maltz Museum, 2929 Richmond Road, Beachwood, Ohio.
Presented by Baker Hostetler with support from the Alvie, Lottie, Rachel and Azzizi Gray Philanthropic Fund; Donna and Stewart Kohl; and Toby Devan Lewis. Organized by Progressive Corporation.
