Eileen Dorsey Studio Ends the Year with Full Line-Up of Exhibitions


312 in the 216! Chicago post-graffiti expressionist, Ish Muhammad, will debut his new work at Eileen Dorsey Studio this fall! When Muhammad and Dorsey met a year ago, they agreed that they would trade studios for Studio Swap: Chicago and Cleveland. Dorsey spent time working in Muhammad’s studio in Chicago this past May, and now it’s time for Ish to come to Cleveland. During the week of September 9th, Ish Muhammad will be creating work at Dorsey’s studio and getting to know the Cleveland arts scene. His residency ends with a closing reception on Friday, September 15 from 5 – 9pm during one of the 78th Street Studios Third Friday art walks. Muhammad has exhibited at the Indiana State Museum, Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Zhou B Art Center in Chicago.
