Case Contributes Talent and Research to the 2007 Ingenuity Festival

IngenuityFest Case Western Reserve University is contributing both talent and research to this year's Ingenuity Festival of Art and Technology, taking place July 19-22 in downtown Cleveland.

Founded in 2005, Ingenuity celebrates Cleveland's diverse arts and technology communities, and also shows how the two genres complement each other. James Levin, the festival's cofounder and a 1979 graduate of the Case School of Law, said that the university's involvement with the festival is a natural fit. "Case is involved at the exhibiting and performance level, as well as the infrastructure and technology. When thinking of arts and technology, one of the first places I'll go to is Case. It's an opportunity for the university to showcase the creativity and innovation taking place in Northeast Ohio, and we're pleased that they are participating," Levin said. Read more.
