Cleveland school of art


Founded in 1881 with the name Western Reserve School of Design for Women, it was renamed in 1891 and kept the name Cleveland School of Art until 1948 when it became Cleveland Institute of Art. During the 1930s Depression, it was a center of much Federal Art Project (WPA) activity including exhibitions, and during World War II, map making and medical drawing were added to the basic curriculum of drawing, painting, and sculpture. It is an historically acclaimed art school, and contributes significantly to the culture of Cleveland. Among its graduates are Robert Mangold, Victor Schreckengost, Charles Burchfield, Clarence Carter and Richard Anuszkiewicz. Source: Wikipedia; AskART biographies
