A traveling exhibition of Cleveland Institute of Art student sketchbooks will be on display at the Rocky River Public Library from Dec.16 through Jan. 31.
The CIA Traveling Sketchbook Project started when the college’s incoming freshmen were provided with identical sketchbooks over the summer, and instructed to complete them during their first month at college. Library visitors can interact with these 65 graphic memoirs and vicariously experience the life of a student in the first month of art school.
The project was designed to support this year’s summer reading at CIA, in which the entire college community was invited to join the new students in reading The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, a novel by Sherman Alexie, with illustrations by graphic novelist, Ellen Forney. Just as the semi-autobiographical novel is formatted as an “absolutely true diary,” CIA students were given an opportunity to fill their own “absolutely true diaries” with images and ideas in response to the novel and documenting their first month away from home in art school.
After the exhibition’s run at the Rocky River Public Library, the collection moves to the Fine Arts & Special Collections Department at Cleveland Public Library from Feb. 10 through March 8; and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Cleveland from March 15 through April 30.
The CIA Traveling Sketchbook Project opened in the CIA Library on Oct. 1 and travelled to the Beth K. Stocker Art Gallery at Lorain County Community College.
