As a recent recipient of a Knight Arts Challenge grant, Akron Art Prize will be transformed into the High Arts Festival in 2017 and will add music and film categories in addition to visual art. The event continues to be sponsored by the Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation and coordinated by Downtown Akron Partnership. This year's event runs Sept. 15-Oct. 7 with a finale reception at the Akron Art Museum. The new High Arts Festival app will be available from the Google Play Store/iTunes Store in September. Through the app, you can register to vote, explore all of the entries and vote on your favorite art, music and film throughout the event.

5th annual Akron Art Prize winners announced. A total of $16,000 awarded to seven artists.
