Akron Art Museum

Akron Art Museum

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 and concerts. In addition to the 2007 Knight Building, the Akron Art Museum’s Bud and Susie Rogers Garden, a one-acre civic commons in downtown Akron along the museum’s south side, was dedicated in July 2016. Designed by OLIN Partners, the Garden is a flexible green space that accommodates museum programming, temporary and permanent art experiences, performances, events and visitor-generated outdoor experiences ranging from family picnics and relaxation, to yoga practice. Because the Akron Art Museum plays a vital role in the continuing renaissance of downtown Akron, the Bud and Susie Rogers Garden is a key component and a beacon illuminating the path of the ongoing reimagining of downtown Akron.
