Shifting Perceptions of Art at the Akron Art Museum

Starts: Tuesday, August 14, 2018 @ 11:30 AM
Ends: Tuesday, August 14, 2018 @ 1:00 PM
Location: Tangier, 532 W. Market Street, Akron
Speaker: Art Museum's Marketing Manager, Dominic Caruso

The Akron Art Museum is one of the largest and best known artistic organizations in Summit County. Lately, its emphasis has become even more community-minded and inclusive than ever, with public outreach into every neighborhood and corner of the Greater Akron area. 

Join PRSA Akron for lunch on Tuesday, August 14 at The Tangier when the Art Museum's Marketing Manager Dominic Caruso presents the program: Art is for Everyone: Working to Shift Perceptions of the Akron Art Museum and Contemporary Art in Akron. He will share innovative ways how the Akron Art Museum is reaching out to the public and shifting perceptions of art. 

Originally from Youngstown, Ohio, Dominic lives and works in Akron and claims dual-citizenship to both cities. He has a B.A. in English from Youngstown State University and a B.F.A. in Graphic Design from the University of Akron's Myers School of Art. When he's not promoting the Akron Art Museum as our community's heart for contemporary art, creativity and ideas, he runs a small press dedicated to publishing nonfiction analysis of pop culture and innovative works of fiction. 

Networking begins at 11:30 a.m. at the Tangier Restaurant in Akron. Cost is $25 for PRSA members; $30 Non-Members and $15 for full-time students. Register before Tuesday, August 7 and receive a $5 Early Bird discount (excludes student fee).
