Have You Seen the Murals in City Hall?

Following the Beyond the Dream: Neighbors Reclaiming Akron community event on April 29, 2018, organizers gathered to review the issues and opportunities that arose from circle discussions with local residents focused on three topics: (1) Economic Disparity, (2) Health Disparity, and (3) Education Disparity.

Art x Love commissioned three artists to create murals inspired by these discussions, which are now part of a permanent installation at Akron City Hall. To see the exhibit, please visit @PLAY Akron gallery here.
