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.

Early Childhood Initiative Helps Parents and Children with an Early Start to Education Part 2
By Lyndsey Schley
Children growing up in poverty have a different set of challenges than their more affluent peers. The Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority, or AMHA, believes their access to these children gives them an unique opportunity to help.
AMHA’s Early Childhood Initiative, or ECI, has gained national attention for their innovative approach to helping children within their system. We continue the story about AMHA’s work with the children and their parents who live in AMHA housing.
