Chin-pao Chen: (some) Clevelanders
Cleveland Print Room
Reception: Thu, May 22, from 5 – 8pm

Spring 2014 Cleveland Foundation Creative Fusion artist-in-residence from Taiwan, Chin-pao Chen, will be presenting the work he’s been creating during his time here in Cleveland, a project he calls(some) Clevelanders. In this exhibition, Chin presents portraits of people he met here in Cleveland during his stay, in settings of some significance to these Clevelanders.

Also opening alongside Chin’s work will be an exhibition of work by talented high school students enrolled in NewBridge Cleveland’s after-school photography program taught by Donald Black Jr. The students’ contribution, Through the Lens, features work that was shot predominantly in the Flats and University Circle. The students then made digital negatives of their work and made prints from these negatives in the darkroom. The final print is a product of learning the darkroom skills necessary for B&W printing. Their resulting prints are truly stunning.

These two shows, demonstrating the Print Room’s desire to work with communities both locally and globally, will be running through Memorial Day weekend. Come check them out!
