John Paul Miller, a 1940 graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art and longtime faculty member, discussed his more than 60 years as a renowned goldsmith who created extraordinary work using an ancient technique of gold granulation. John Paul Miller died quietly at his home south of Cleveland in early March, 2013 at age 94.

His work resides in museums around the world, including Museum of Modern Art, New York, Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Ed Mieczkowski '57

Ed Mieczkowski has long been considered a founding member of the hard-edged, geometric abstraction movement Anomia in the early 1960s. He follows a rigorous, self-imposed program of painting exercise to explore the effects color on visual perception. He is a 1957 CIA graduate and served as a faculty member for nearly 40 years. His work is in the collections of museums of several international museums, including the Tel Aviv Museum of Modern Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art and museums in Poland and Denmark.
