Cleveland Design Month-and-a-Half 2011

April and May are bursting with design events, from CIA's Spring Design Show to the Cleveland Furniture Fair.

Cleveland Design Month-and-a-Half 2011

With countless design events and activities taking place around town from April to May, this season is inaugurated as the Cleveland Design Month-and-a-Half.

The Cleveland Institute of Art’s annual Spring Design Show, a tradition for more than 20 years, kicks off on Tuesday, April 19 with a free public reception from 5:30 to 8pm at Case Western Reserve University’s Peter B. Lewis Building. Student work in industrial, interior, and communication design will be on display for the public, as well as national employers.

These students create innovative products, toys, and cars; challenge your perceptions of physical space; and generate branding and graphic campaigns that invite you into the dialog of contemporary design. And during the week of April 19, designers hailing from some of the most progressive firms in the world will present a series of free lectures to the public (details at cia.edu/springdesignshow).

In addition, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Cleveland Chapter has a calendar full of lectures, exhibitions, and tours open to the public that will introduce new and exciting architecture and design to Northeast Ohio.

And the design dialog continues through May with the second annual Cleveland Furniture Fair, hosted by Cleveland’s District of Design. The District of Design initiative is spearheaded by Dan Cuffaro ’91, chair of design at the Institute, and Ned Hill, dean of Cleveland State University’s College of Urban Affairs. Check out this video for a look at CIA students’ furniture exhibition in last year’s Furniture Fair.
