The Library will participate in two different art projects in 2015. First is the Inside/Out initiative of the Akron Art Museum, which will see reproductions of pieces from the museum’s collection temporarily placed in interesting and perhaps surprising outside locations in the community.

Among the locations chosen were Main Library and the North Hill Branch Library, with installation scheduled for April and extending into the summer. Second, as part of the celebration of its 125th anniversary, Akron Children’s Hospital has commissioned an artist to produce large, freestanding metallic flower sculptures and has chosen Main Library as a location for one of these pieces.
