One Campus

The Cleveland Institute of Art (CIA) currently operates a split campus, with some departments and functions housed in its George Gund Building at 11141 East Boulevard, and the remainder in its Joseph McCullough Center for the Visual Arts at 11610 Euclid Avenue.

The college is entering the second phase of a two-phase project to modernize and unify its campus. Phase I was the top-to-bottom modernization of the McCullough building, which is a renovated Model T Ford factory that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The recent McCullough renovation netted CIA awards of recognition from The Cleveland Restoration Society, the Cleveland and Akron chapters of the American Institute of Architects, and University Circle Inc.

Phase II will unify CIA’s campus on Euclid Avenue with the construction of a new building adjoined to McCullough on the west, and named for George Gund II in honor of the $10 million in support provided by his family and the foundation that bears his name. Gund chaired CIA’s board from 1942-1966.

A festive, ceremonial groundbreaking for the new building was held on June 26, 2013. Click here to view pictures of that event.

CIA is selling its East Boulevard building to Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Museum of Art and will unify all operations on Euclid Avenue by the fall of 2015.

The new 80,000-square-foot George Gund Building will:

  • house the Peter B. Lewis Theater, the new home of CIA’s year-round, nationally acclaimed Cinematheque film program
  • be home to CIA’s Industrial Design, Interior Architecture, Graphic Design, Illustration, Biomedical Art, Animation, and Game Design program
  • have an exhibition gallery; café; American Greetings Welcome Center; the Admissions and Financial Aid offices; and several administrative operations
  • look crisp and contemporary without detracting from the historic McCullough building next door, and
  • fully connect CIA to the new Uptown development of retail, restaurants, and residential construction anchored by our site to the east and the new home of MOCA Cleveland to the west

Uptown Phase II, now under construction at the corner of Euclid Avenue and Ford Drive, will include CIA’s new freshmen residence hall. Under the direction of developer MRN Ltd., it will be completed by August 2014. CIA’s state-of-the-art living and learning environment in the trendy Uptown neighborhood will help the college draw top students from across the country. 

Even without the new facilities, CIA has increased enrollment in recent years, bringing in a record number of new students over the last three years.
