Harper has been called "...an innovator in iconography, technique and use of materials" who has influenced a generation of enamelists. His work combines religious imagery from cultures around the world with a remarkable aesthetic sensibility.
Miller is world renowned in the metalsmithing field for his research and work in granulation. During his 40-year tenure on the faculty of The Cleveland Institute of Art, he taught courses in watercolor, design, film animation, filmmaking, and metalry.
The alumni exhibition, From Here to Infinity and The Big Bang, celebrates 125 years of innovation with work by 54 alumni displayed in two venues.
