Our collection includes thousands of paintings, photographs, prints and sculptures created by some of the most significant modern and contemporary artists over the past two centuries. And each year we offer special exhibitions that showcase nationally and internationally acclaimed artists as well as presenting the work of notable artists in the forefront of their careers.

The Akron Art Museum is more than art museum. As a member you will receive invitations to Members Only events including day trips, family events, weekend art getaways, behind-the-scenes tours, wine and beer tastings and much more. You’ll also receive a subscription to our VIEW magazine, which will keep you up-to-date on all the latest happenings at the museum.
