Celebrate community and culture at the Inside|Out Community-Wide pARTy at the Akron Art Museum. Community leaders, business owners and residents of Copley Township, West Akron & Sherbondy Hill, Middlebury and Ellet have welcomed reproductions of artworks from the collection into their neighborhoods from May through October 2017 via this community activated art project and we welcome you back in to the museum to see the original works of art.

Join us and celebrate with your neighbors, learn about happenings in the neighborhoods and experience the originals while they are still on display through the length of the project. The artworks will be up in the museum and on display out in the communities through October 31, 2017.

Micro/Macro with Elizabeth Carney, Assistant Curator 

Marilyn Bridges and Jeannette Klute both chose Earth’s natural and human-touched terrain as their subject matter. Micro/Macro illustrates how photographs of the Earth on both an intimate and aerial scale can be disorienting as well as familiar, and the inherent compositional parallels between the work of two very different artists.

Members: FREE; Non-members: Free with gallery admission.
