Director's Holiday Message

Raphael Gleitsmann, Winter Evening, c1932
At the Akron Art Museum, we are reflecting on the people who have touched our lives, the accomplishments of 2014 and the excitement we have for 2015 and beyond. We could not have been successful without you. Thank you for continuing to engage in the ongoing conversation with us about the vital role the museum can play in the cultural health and wellness of the city. We believe that the museum can be the catalyst for positive cultural, social and economic change, and with your input we will continue to create opportunities in the community for meaningful, quality art experiences. Art is for everyone. Ideas are for everyone, and whether you are a high-frequency culture seeker or an occasional visitor, the Akron Art Museum can enrich your life and imagination, and in return enrich ours.
On behalf of the Akron Art Museum, I wish you a happy and healthy holiday season and a creative New Year.
Mark Masuoka, Executive Director and CEO
