Relief Podcast: Togetherness

This monthly podcast brings listeners joy and comfort to your day.

The Akron Art Museum’s staff shares insights from their own lives combined with conversations about the collection and interviews with regional artists and musicians.

Join us the first Friday of every month at noon.



Seema and Gina talk about the different forms of “togetherness” and how people have fostered those moments over the past couple of years.

Shop Talk with Terence Hammonds

Printmaker Terence Hammonds lives and works in Cincinnati, Ohio. He received his BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in conjunction with Tufts University. His work is informed and inspired by the struggles and determination of African-Americans who sought equality during the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. He fuses imagery from that era with soul, funk, rap, and punk music. Hammonds appropriates imagery from various movements, publications, and Civil Rights history. He combines them with decorative motifs and patterns that adorn, memorialize, and abstract histories of racial identity in America.
