Renowned and caring faculty and staff
At The University of Akron’s Myers School of Art, students study side-by-side with talented and caring faculty members who are committed to helping turn aspirations into accomplishments.
We have 22 full-time faculty members with about the same number of part-time faculty members. We also have eight full-time staff professionals, including a dedicated adviser to assist our students.
Folk Hall, home of the Myers School of Art, was once a Cadillac auto dealership, complete with spacious showrooms and service bays. Now completely remodeled, it is among the largest academic art facilities in the region.
Stellar visiting artists, residencies, lecture series
Frequent residencies and lectures bring stellar guest artists into Folk Hall to share their creativity, talents and expertise with students and faculty.
More opportunities beyond the classroom
A worthwhile college experience is much more than classrooms, books and exams. Our students are encouraged to experience new, vibrant and worthwhile artistic opportunities.
