In Akron, we believe that public art provides meaning to our public spaces, reflects the history of a city, adds uniqueness to neighborhoods, and humanizes our environment.

Join ArtsNow and Designing Local for a professional development training opportunity for visual artists interested in the City of Akron's proposed Plan for Public Art.
