Excited to welcome "Healing Expressions" from Cleveland Clinic Akron General's McDowell Cancer Center art therapy program, August 16 thru October 14.

Cleveland Clinic Akron General would like to invite you to "Healing Expressions," an art therapy patient exhibit.

Our McDowell Cancer Center art therapy program, in partnership with the Summit County Courthouse, will be displaying patient and caregiver artwork in the building.

Jala Manes aka the Tintman was in today to get his marriage license with his lovely bride to be.

They were checking out the art by Danny Ratcliff and were kind enough to share their moments and thoughts with us.

They shared that they noticed the changes to the court right away and that the previous art had reminded them so much more of war than the peace that they felt looking at the new works.

Congrats and good luck!!

Young artists.

As we wrap up our second collection of cards for seniors and their care providers, huge thanks to the dozens across the county who worked to get us these cards. Final numbers soon but it is OVER 3000 cards!

Here are two of our youngest helpers! (With little brother keeping watch.)

Check out Birds of a Feather. This is a collaboration between Summit Metro Parks and Summit County Probate Court and a dozen senior living buildings across Summit County!

It is 4 panels that are 3ft wide by 7 ft tall and will eventually hang within the Probate Courtroom. See it temporarily in the court hallways.

Today Birds of a Feather was moved from display at the Akron Summit County Public Library main branch to a roost at the Summit County Courthouse.

It will soon be permanently installed in Judge Stormer’s Courtroom.

This is a collaboration between Summit Metro Parks, Probate and dozens of senior living centers throughout the County throughout the initial lockdown of 2020.
