Akron Art Museum
“We believe that art is for everyone and that our exhibitions, programs and events should be available to anyone who seeks a deeper understanding of what it means to live a creative life.” —Executive Director and CEO Mark Masuoka
The Akron Art Museum, dedicated to enriching lives through modern and contemporary art, showcases regional, national and international art created since 1850. The museum’s collection is presented in a spectacular facility designed by Viennese architectural firm Coop Himmelb(l)au and includes over 5,000 works of art, with a strong focus on contemporary painting, sculpture and photography. Nearly a dozen exhibitions each year present prominent artists in various media including painting, sculpture, photography, video, design and glass.
In addition to its ever-changing collection and exhibitions, the museum offers many opportunities to live creative through programs that include films and video, lectures, workshops, tours, concerts, and public art projects.
