Personally participating in, hosting one of the locations on the Akron Artwalk for the first time, as well as seeing Akron citizens still curious and interested in the art happening in their town felt refreshing. From senior citizens, to young mothers introducing their children to art, the turn out for April 2012’s Artwalk was not too shabby.
The free trolley appeared in front of each stop every fifteen minutes and conveniently continued into the ten o’clock hour. Approximately fourteen locations were included in this month’s Artwalk including the Icehouse Complex, Summit Artspace, and Rubber City Clothing.
The Akron Artwalk is made possible by Akron’s artists, the citizens, the Downtown Akron Partnership, Summa Health System, and 89.7 WKSU.
