Upcoming Events

When the building is open, the museum does its best to run programs. In the unfortunate instance something unforeseen occurs, the museum works hard to contact possible participants and/ or find an alternate date.

Kids Studio at the Akron Art Museum - Colossal Collage, Panic-Build Style!

Inventiveness using unique materials and exploring the creative process of art-making are key components to our studio experience. Dress for mess.
