Our Museum was pleased to present a special exhibition of the work of the internationally acclaimed Hungarian American artist,
— Mr. George Kozmon —
George Kozmon received his BFA from The Cleveland Institute of Art and has been shown internationally in France and Germany and in numerous galleries in the U.S. including the Robert Kidd Gallery in Michigan, and the Mary Bell Galleries in Arizona, and Chicago, Illinois.
” Even before his graduation from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1982, George Kozmon’s work was widely recognized and awarded. His architectural explorations of European structures evolved during an extended stay abroad, thanks in part to the Helen Green Perry Traveling Scholarship. Since those early days Mr. Kozmon has developed a vision and a path for his art. He has exhibited his work in over twenty solo shows, in both commercial and institutional fine art venues. In addition the work has been shown exclusively throughout the United States as well as Toronto, Ontario, Paris, France and Cologne, Germany.”
“Mr. Kozmon is the recipient of four Ohio Arts Council grants, as well as a National Endowment for the Arts, Individual Artist Fellowship. His work is in many public and private collections including the Cleveland Museum of Art, Butler Institute of American Art and the Erie Art Museum. Currently Mr. Kozmon’s work has moved from static man-made structures to dynamic figural compositions exploring a new vision.”
Mr. George Kozmon is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Cleveland Hungarian Heritage Museum. He was also one of the “Guests of Honor” at the 5th Annual Benefit Vintner Dinner in 2002, hosted by the Museum.
