🎨 June 9, 2023 5pm - 9pm

🎨 Akron Art Museum parking lot, 29 S Broadway St across from Summit Art Space

“The Art of an Akron Uprising” is an interactive, multi-media art exhibition that invites people in for a day of community joy, reflection, learning, and creative expression.

While the exhibition is strongly influenced by the police murder of Jayland Walker in June 2022 and the ensuing uprising, we hope to showcase all aspects of movements and struggles here in Akron.

If you have art that reflects on the brutality of oppression, and/or the struggle for social justice, we'd love to see it and share it with the community!

Just as community members are able to contribute to the practice of vital science in the park through tracking plant and animal populations, such as annual songbird migrations, testing the waters of the Cuyahoga River, or listening to and counting the coyote calls at night, we believe our writing community can contribute to the ways in which we know this ecosystem. At ArtWalk on Sept. 9, join the Kent State University Wick Poetry Center in responding creatively to prompts regarding the landscape, culture, history, and diverse species of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
