Inside|Out is a community activated art project that brings art reproductions from the Akron Art Museum's collection into your neighborhood.

Inside|Out Akron installed ten artworks in outdoor spaces along the Ohio & Erie Towpath Trail and in the Summit Metro Parks during spring 2015. The art was on view in the outdoor spaces through mid-July, 2015. Check out the slideshow above for images and captions describing the artwork and events in the Summit Metro Parks and along the Towpath Trail during the installation period. From early August through October 2015, the Inside|Out artworks will be re-installed in 3 new communities: The University of Akron & University Park, Cuyahoga Falls, and West Hill & Highland Square. Be sure to visit the art in the new surroundings!
