What made you decide to have your business become an Art Works Business Member?
Our office is located across S. High Street from the Museum so it’s a nice place for our associates to visit for lunch or during breaks.

Akron Coffee Roasters

How frequently do you visit the Akron Art Museum? 
I visit the Museum frequently with my wife Julie and our three children Owen, Ingrid, and Henry. The programming for children is great. Julie and I have also attended various fundraisers and events at the Museum. .

"The Akron Art Museum is an important gathering place where people interact with each other and with art. It’s a social and cerebral experience. In a tech driven screen-based world the Museum celebrates people and highlights the tactile."

What benefit of Art Works Business Membership do you appreciate the most and why? 
Offering our associates access to the Museum is what we appreciate the most.

How has the Akron Art Museum impacted you? Your business? The region as a whole?
Our family has benefited quite a bit from the Museum programming. Programming has become quite interactive and child friendly over the past 6 years under Executive Director Masuoka. Our associates have benefited from the Museum through “Free Thursdays” and will benefit more-so with expanded access.

Are there particular works of art in the collection or current/past exhibitions that are special to you? Which ones and why? 
I enjoyed the Nick Cave’s Feat exhibit. The Museum has done a great job displaying to the community the amazing things people are capable of creating. The permanent collection and temporary exhibitions seem to be of very high quality.

The “Inside/Out” art project was a lot of fun. We were able to participate by providing two locations in northwest Akron for art. I’m hoping for another round of Inside/Out and would look forward to participating.

Why do you feel the Akron Art Museum is important – for individuals, families, communities – your employees?
The Akron Art Museum is an important gathering place where people interact with each other and with art. It’s a social and cerebral experience. In a tech driven screen-based world the Museum celebrates people and highlights the tactile.

Do you have a story or memory that you would like to share about the Akron Art Museum?
One of the really cool projects we were fortunate to collaborate on with the museum was the Mark Mothersbaugh exhibition, Myopia. We worked with Mark to develop a special blend of coffee that he requested to have notes of “rubber and oats” to taste like Akron. We were also able to use a piece of his artwork for the bag design. It was a big hit at the museum. We received a lot of online orders from Mark’s fans around the country and shipped a big order to Mutato Musika, Mark’s Los Angeles music studio.
