ArtWorks BUSINESS MEMBERSHIP SPOTLIGHT

Generation Strong

Fitness, Akron Ohio

Serenity Messner, Owner

What prompted your business to support the Akron Art Museum?

Being active in our community is important to us, and we love the Museum. Generation Strong decided to become a supporter because we believe that great things happen when people can gather in a place where connection happens and stories can be shared. Our passion is helping people get stronger and enjoy their lives more—and everyone has a different story about where they are in life, where they’d like to go next, and how they want to feel in their journey to get there. We love getting to hear and be a part of those stories. The Akron Art Museum holds space for stories to be brought to life through art and shared for all to enjoy. We love being able to support that experience.

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

We love having the ability to host special events for our clients and employees. It gives us the chance to be together and do something different outside of the gym—not to mention swap out our gym clothes for a nice (not sweaty) adventure! We are also excited to utilize the garden space in the warmer months to host a unique outdoor fitness class.

How has the Museum impacted your business?

As a new supporting business member, we are looking forward to growing our relationship and in turn seeing the positive impact the Akron Art Museum will have on our business.

Why is the Museum important for your employees and the community?

We believe that art, creativity, and diversity are incredibly important and valuable as an outlet for people to explore, get inspired, and dream. Individuals, families, and communities ultimately thrive when they have the opportunity to see new ideas and view the world from different perspectives and expressions of lived experiences. Akron is so fortunate to have such a beautiful and accessible resource.

Are particular works in the collection or in certain exhibitions special to you?

I loved the exhibition Responsibility to Reveal: 30 Years of the Knight Purchase Award for Photographic Media. Photography is my favorite art form because it evokes feeling and emotion differently than other mediums. It sparks countless narratives of what might have been going on when an image was captured. It inspires you to put yourself in that place in time for a moment. I especially love the rawness of portraits, and this exhibition had amazing ones that I really enjoyed.
