So you may have seen this news item recently. If you haven't (well, go read it) The Akron Art Museum finally opened a few weeks ago after about 2-3 years in construction. You may remember my construction photos from my blog entry from way back when. I'm not going to give much opinion on the building as for now but I did quite enjoy it, much better than this disaster. It has received good reviews from most, and the only negative comments relate to the galleries and their lack of sunlight and its general plainness. I thought the galleries were fine, they were nothing like the amazing lobby, but I felt that was the point. Let the art speak for itself.. don't let it get confused with the crazy architecture.
Anyways, some quick highlights. Check it all out in my flickr.
