Three students from Case Western Reserve University and Cuyahoga Community College will share presentations inspired by works from the Cleveland Museum of Art’s collections during the Mardi Gras-themed MIX event Friday, Feb. 5, from 5 to 9 p.m. Come support students as they speak about the masks we wear in our lives. Tours will begin at 6:15 and 7:45 p.m.
This month’s MIX: Mask event also will feature a hands-on, mask-themed Art Cart. Attendees can create their own Mardi Gras-style masks and check out the special exhibitions “Silent Poetry: Masterworks of Chinese Painting” and “Imagining the Garden.”
For this event, CMA has partnered with Voices from the Village, a yearlong program that originated at Cuyahoga Community College to explore various themes related to the human experience, and with the Cleveland Humanities Collaborative (CHC). The CHC is a partnership between Case Western Reserve University and Cuyahoga Community College that provides a pathway for high-performing Tri-C students to complete their associate’s degree and transfer to CWRU to pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in one or more of CWRU’s humanities programs. More information about the CHC can be found at chc.case.edu.
