CSU Art Students in Ultra Mega Art Show


Fri 6/13 @ 7pm

This Friday, Doubting Thomas’ invitation-only group exhibition Ultra Mega Art! highlights the best and brightest emerging artists from Cleveland State’s Art Department. CSU’s Art Department is two years into a brand-new chapter in their legacy. With the opening of their new Arts Campus and The Galleries at Cleveland State in Downtown’s Theatre District, the future is looking very bright at the corner of Euclid Avenue and E. 13th Street.

The Galleries at Cleveland State recently hosted the student-organized Student Show and Merit Scholar Exhibition — the second in their beautiful new space next to PlayhouseSquare on Euclid Avenue. The shows featured nearly 100 works by dozens of students in photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, graphic design, video and more.

During the exhibitions’ run, Doubting Thomas’ owner Theresa Boyd and Ultra Mega Art!’s organizer, Shepherd Weita, quietly visited the gallery and personally selected their favorites. A total of 9 emerging students were invited to participate in a group exhibition at Doubting Thomas for this month’s Tremont Art Walk.

“We are so excited to see this show come together,” says Weita. “It shines with the freshness of new talent and demonstrates the increasing influence of Cleveland State University’s Art Department on our local art community.”

Ultra Mega Art! features the work of Dunya Abrahim, Oni Allen, Christina Casal, Elisabeth Dare, Wade Gagich, Jaco Jucutan, Ben Rodriguez, Omid Tavakoli and Liz Trenholme.
