Celebrating over 150 years of service, the Akron Area YMCA is a powerful association with a shared commitment to ignite youth empowerment, improve overall health and well-being, and demonstrate the importance of connections within our community. The Y ensures that everyone—regardless of age, income or background — has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.

In that spirit, Summit Artspace is honoring the organization’s milestone year by inviting artists to create pieces that include the letter “Y” in any way. Whether literal, hidden, or abstract, Akron-area artists share their Y story. Join us to reflect on yours.
