In Print

April 8 – July 30, 2014
Cleveland Clinic Art Exhibition Area – between Q and G buildings

Fine art prints and print-based artwork is a central part of the Cleveland Clinic art collection. Artists who work in many different media have historically used printmaking as a way to expand on their ideas, experimenting with techniques and creating series and multiples, allowing for different kinds of narratives. In Print features prints by a global group of artists working with a broad variety of print techniques and materials: from traditional woodcuts to toner transfers and more. These are newer acquisitions from the Clinic’s collection and will be distributed system-wide after the exhibition, and this is a great opportunity to see them in a gallery setting.

Medical Mutual Performing Arts Series

A regular series of performances that provide audiences the opportunity to engage noteworthy artists and groups. This series was made possible through the generous support of Medical Mutual.
