Message Matters


A public art project for the Akron Art Museum
by Jamie Burmeister

“Message Matters” is a site-specific light installation that seeks to transform the Akron Art Museum into a beacon of love. The work features lights installed in the west stairwell facing High Street, in the museum’s 1899 building. These simple lights installed in windows fade in and out sending a singular Morse code message of “Luv U.”
The intent of “Message Matters” is to send a positive message of love throughout the city of Akron with the hope that Akron will love us back.
