ArtWorks BUSINESS MEMBERSHIP SPOTLIGHT

ScanWorks

Deb Monaco (far right) is the owner and founder of ScanWorks, a professional document scanning company in Cuyahoga Falls.

What prompted your business to support the Akron Art Museum?

I’ve been a longtime fan and member of the Museum. When I learned about the Art Works program, I readily signed up my company. I hoped that everything I appreciate about the Museum would be appreciated by our staff as well.

What benefit of Art Works Business Membership do you appreciate the most?

I am so pleased that all staff members can now visit the Museum anytime they want at no cost to them. We visited together recently as part of our Wellness Wednesday series, and the staff very much enjoyed what they saw. And I loved seeing it through their eyes. I’ve since heard many of them planning their next visit with friends and family, and asking for reminders about upcoming events. They all signed up for Museum email notifications. I am thrilled by their response!

How has the Museum impacted your business and the region as a whole?

It has provided a venue for my company’s staff bonding experience. In terms of regional impact, the Museum makes art accessible locally, provides communal gathering options with various presentations and live music opportunities, and brings prestige to our city.

Why is the Museum important to the community, and to your employees?

Akron is very fortunate to have a quality museum with such a variety of artwork and special events.

Our museum offers us the opportunity to expand our horizons. Art speaks to everyone in a different way when they get to experience it in person. I saw that in our staff when we visited, which was a first for many. You can tell when a particular piece resonates with someone in the way that they light up and begin sharing their reaction with others. (You can also tell when they take pictures to share on social media!) Experiencing art allows us to step out of ourselves and into other worlds.

Do you remember a favorite artwork or exhibition?

I am fascinated by Chuck Close’s   Linda. Portions of it are so perfectly painted that I find myself   double-checking   to   see   if   it’s   actually a photograph. I also find it interesting to walk around the sculptures and view them from multiple angles. I always find myself thinking, “How did they do that?” I loved meeting artist Jordan Wong, hearing him talk about his process for The 10,000 Things, and participating in his Games in the Garden event—what a unique experience.

Do you have a story or memory you would like to share?

For me, the highlight of summer is the Downtown@Dusk series. I buy a CD every time Anne E. DeChant performs, and I am the newest fan of the Numbers Band. There is nothing quite like enjoying some art, nabbing a glass of wine, and then finding a spot in the garden with friends to relax and bask in the summer sun.
