For the 2010 Cleveland Ingenuity Festival, Qian Li, a
local artist and Cleveland State University professor, will be a
Featured Artist creating an installation that combines dramatic
lighting and sculpture in an artistic representation of marriage
customs in China and memories of her childhood in China.
Internationally acclaimed, Li has exhibited at MOCA Cleveland; the
Boston Cyber Art Festival; the Festival Miden in Greece, the 12th
International Video Festival Videomedeja in Serbia; the Transhift08
in Tennessee; SIGGRAPH; the Kinetic Image in Virginia; the
International Video Festival in Indonesia; the Electronic Language
International Festival in Brazil; and the International Symposium of
Interactive Media Design in Turkey.
Founder and Artistic Director of the Ingenuity Festival, James
Levin, said, “Qian’s piece is so vital to this year’s Festival. Her
installation is the perfect combination of art, technology and
tradition. Her sculptures will float beautifully on the water near
our Opera Stage creating an ambient and exciting site to see.”
The Ingenuity Festival is one of the premier non-profit festivals in
Cleveland. Its mission is to celebrate and exhibit local innovations
in the fields of art and technology. This year’s Festival will be
held on the lower level of the Veteran’s Memorial (Detroit-Superior)
Bridge from September 24-26. For more information about this year’s
