Ian Ruffino: Sleep
Oct. 16–Nov. 9, 2012
Reception: Oct. 26, 6 p.m.
Room, Canzani Center Gallery (map it)
Sleep explores a decision Ian Ruffino made nearly 10 years ago to cast away all colors from his wardrobe except for blue, thus affirming a defined blue space as a platform for consciousness. Sleep’s modestly sized drawings, paintings, and prints navigate a culture and narrative of what he calls “a space to wake.” Ruffino’s work has been shown in Texas, Macedonia, and Germany, among other places. He teaches at Ohio State University.
Also on view in the Canzani Center Gallery: Todd Slaughter's American Primitives, Sept. 27–Nov. 8, 2012.
Gallery Hours: Monday, closed; Tuesday–Friday, 10 a.m.–7 p.m.; Saturday & Sunday, noon–5 p.m.

Room is a project room in CCAD’s Canzani Center Gallery. Throughout the year, it hosts small exhibitions, projects, and video installations that flow new information into the CCAD exhibitions program—sometimes complementing the main gallery show, other times standing alone.
