Here at the CMA we have an outstanding team of guards who work everyday to protect our masterpieces and make sure the art stays in the galleries. Some of them, however, spend their free time creating art for galleries. These individuals organized a group called the Cleveland Museum of Art Protection Services Artist Group and they are presenting an exhibition titled Those Who Protect Also Create at the Fairmount Center for the Arts. The show will be on view through December 11, 2009 and is located at 8400 Fairmount Road in Novelty, O

CLEVELAND (November 19, 2009) –The Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) celebrates The Cleveland Institute of Art exhibition CIA Students: Cleveland, 2009. The CIA student exhibition, featuring 10 pieces created just for this occasion by 21 students, is inspired by Paul Gauguin and other anti-establishment artists at Monsieur Volpini's Café des Arts in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower in 1889. Just as Gauguin showed the world a glimpse of the emerging artists of his day, the CIA café exhibition at the museum offers a look at today’s young talent.
