The Akron Art Museum’s second year of the community-activated art project, Inside|Out will expand its reach in 2016. The museum will partner with eight new neighborhoods to install 40 art reproductions from the museum’s collection in and around the city.
Last year, the museum installed 30 reproductions at outdoor locations in six neighborhoods in and around the Akron area. Inside|Out was made possible by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
