Event description

Description

Join the museum’s Art Library Program Coordinator Jessica Fijalkovich for a studio tour and talk with Art Library Artist Melissa Markwald at Summit Artspace. We will meet in the Akron Art Museum lobby at 6 PM and take a short walk over to Summit Artspace.

Markwald shifts between creating small abstract compositions and painting larger than life portraits of average people, turning them into iconic figures. During this behind the scenes experience you will learn more about the artist's process and techniques and see what she is currently working on.

After the tour choose your own adventure! Enjoy free admission to the museum or visit the Art Library collection at the Akron-Summit County Public Library Main Library to reserve an original work of art to hang in your home.

Space is limited! Only 10 spots available. Registration required: $5 members, $10 non-members.

This tour is part of the Akron Art Library, an art lending program in partnership with the Akron-Summit County Public Library. Find out more about the Akron Art Library here.
