  • "Ginger Jar"
Brent Young’s three-foot-tall “Ginger Jar” is a container in name only. You might uncover a piece like this (with its delicate glass loops) during an archaeological dig, but the Cleveland Institute of Art professor of glass’ sole intent was to show off a technique that makes viewers wonder, “How did he do that?” It’s just one of the works on view in CIA’s 2009 Faculty Exhibition. The annual show, which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year, unveils the broad scope of formal, functional and aesthetic art created by the school’s faculty. You’ll also see Kasumi’s 10-foot-long “Xerox Machine Sketching,” an industrial-looking workstation Dan Cuffaro made from wood he found around town, and plenty of paintings, drawings and other media. The exhibit opens with a reception from 6:30-8:30 tonight. It continues through October 10 at CIA’s Reinberger Galleries (11141 East Blvd., 216.421.7000). Admission is free. — Michael Gill
