The Galleries at Cleveland State University
The first of its kind in Northeast Ohio, the exhibition features most recent works by contemporary Chinese artists who re-interpret the great tradition of Chinese art in their fascinating exploration of formal, stylistic and material aspects in the rapidly changing economic, social and cultural realities of China. This exhibition presents a diverse selection of Chinese contemporary artists, and includes various media including Chinese traditional painting, photography, digital animations and site-specific installations. The works address an array of relevant themes including environmental issues, historical traditions, economic development and life experiences. This exhibition will communicate the impact that contemporary art has on everyday life in China.
Humanities Department held its annual Public Speaking Competition, with 29 students participating. Professors Denise Scannell and Magdalena Igiel, event coordinators, organized 18 judges from across 12 departments for the first round of the competition, from which six students were selected to advance to the final round. The final round, held in the Atrium Amphitheatre, was judged by Dean Karl Botchway, Professor Ann Delilkan, and Professor Aaron Barlow. Speranta Duliepre, Ashley Godoy, Nivaaj Kanan, Alicia Ngai, Radica Ramjatan, and Tamam Shihadeh competed in the final round. Each student had worked with their professor during the semester to polish their speech: Professors Sarah Standing, Magdalena Igiel, Shauna Vey, Sarah Standing, Denise Scannell and Gail Leinwall, respectively.
Tamam Shihadeh, a transfer student enrolled in the Liberal Arts and Sciences program, won the competition with a well-supported argument against the Common Core Curriculum. “I’m so excited to win—I’ve never won anything before!” said Shihadeh, who will go on to compete in the CUNY-wide speech competition held in the spring.
