Clothing as Evidence, a solo exhibition by Cleveland Institute of Art rising senior Casey Wehrman, will feature human-scale prints that depict embellished and embossed garments, highlighting impressions on clothing made by those who wear them.

Absent depictions of a physical body, Wehrman's work invites viewers to consider the interaction between adornment and body. The work addresses a garment's function to beautify or leave a deep, lasting mark on the wearer.

Wehrman is pursuing the indexicality of printmaking in this series, giving these articles of clothing a moment to cement the place and time of their existence. By cataloging these objects through print, they lose their ability to function as garments, yet gain a new life by leaving their impressions on a new surface.

An opening reception for Clothing as Evidence will be held from 6 to 8pm Friday, May 31 at Praxis Fiber Workshop (15301 Waterloo Road, Cleveland).

This pop-up exhibition will also be on view from noon to 4pm Sunday, June 2, during the gallery's regular hours of operation. Outside of those hours, the show can be viewed by appointment Saturday through Sunday, June 1–2. To schedule a visit, contact Wehrman at

Clothing as Evidence was created through CIA's Creativity Works program, which is made possible by the generous support of the Fenn Educational Fund and the G.R. Lincoln Family Foundation. Creativity Works is a self-initiated internship program with the goal of supporting a student's professional development. Participating students create proposals that align with their long-term professional goals.
