The School of Art Collection and Galleries presents Kent Blossom Art Intensives: The First 10 Years, Highlights from the School of Art Collection.  Since 1968, the School of Art has been conducting studio art intensives during the summers where visiting artists travel to Kent State to teach and mentor a select group of students. The School of Art Collection, which consists of over 4,000 artworks, has acquired work by many of these artists over the years.

In this exhibition, artworks by visiting artists who participated during the first decade of the Kent Blossom Art program (1968-1977) will be on display.  Artists included in the exhibition are: Philip Pearlstein, Richard Anuszkiewicz, R.B. Kitaj, Nathan Oliveira, Clarence Holbrook Carter, Jack Tworkov, Otto Piene, David Stoltz, Alex Katz, Richard Hunt, Larry Zox, Julian Stanczak, and Adja Yunkers. Join us to celebrate 50 years of Kent Blossom Art Intensives!  

The exhibition will be on view at the CVA Gallery from August 28 through September 28, 2018 and is free and open to the public. The CVA Gallery is located in the Center for the Visual Arts at 325 Terrace Drive in Kent, Ohio.  Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.
