Warm up with a cup of coffee and chat about the upcoming exhibition Elias Sime: Tightrope with Curator of Exhibitions Theresa Bembnister. This casual conversation will focus on the behind-the-scenes efforts required to present the work of Ethiopian artist Elias Sime in Akron. Sime uses repurposed materials such as computer keyboards, motherboards and electrical wires to create complex, colorful tableaus. These intricately woven, densely layered works comment on ecological sustainability, the resilience of nature, social responsibility and the beauty of the utilitarian.

Complimentary admission for members, $12/nonmembers
