What prompted your business to support the Akron Art Museum?

Gabe and I are continuously looking at meaningful ways to give back to our team who work so hard for our customers. The Museum has always held a special place in our hearts, and we are thrilled to share that passion. We feel it is important for everyone to experience art and culture.

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

That it prompted members of our team to visit the Museum; some for the very first time. I’ve gotten very positive feedback from those who have gone, and they have started to encourage other team members to visit. You know what they say: word of mouth is the best form of advertising, and it’s always earned.

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

The Museum is a downtown Akron destination spot, and many people come shop and eat with us before or after their visit. Many Museum staff and board members are also customers of ours. What I love is that in more recent years, the Museum has made meaningful efforts to reach beyond its walls in order to share arts and culture with the entire Akron community. I tip my hat to that community outreach.

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

The arts give a voice to those who wish to say something but don’t have another platform to say it. Artists express meaning in a variety of incredibly creative ways. Interacting with an artistic expression provides an incredibly powerful, moving experience we all can benefit from.

Do you remember a favorite artwork or exhibition?

I grew up coming to the Akron Art Museum and have always been fascinated by Claes Oldenburg’s Inverted Q. I love that the sculpture has endured the decades and found a new home in the Museum’s lobby. I get a warm sense of nostalgia every time I see it.

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

I fondly remember the first time I set foot in the new museum building. It was such a cool, radical departure from the architecture that I was used to at the time. I was impressed that the structure housing the art was itself a monumental piece of art. Everything just felt right, and even today I get that same feeling. I’ve seen countless shows and have attended many social gatherings at the Museum, and each visit brings a vast rush of memories and emotions. Thank you for keeping the magic going!
