From the Vault:  40 Years of Excellence at UA’s Emily Davis Gallery

Exhibition dates: December 4, 2014 - February 6th, 2015


“From the Vault” explores the history of the Gallery and its collection with an array of works by visiting artists, professors, and alumni from the school.  Works on display include a variety of media, from ceramics to printmaking and painting. These works highlight different artists and eras in the gallery’s history, allow viewers to experience a deeper understanding of and appreciation for the collection. 

The Emily Davis Gallery has a history of bringing in international artists as well as national contemporary artists.  In addition to drawing visitors from around the area, the Gallery has played an important role in educating University of Akron students about curating, installing, and preserving artwork.  This exhibition will highlight that history and invite visitors to explore artworks from the permanent collection.


The Emily Davis Gallery is closed over the holiday break, December 15th-January 11th! Any inquiries should be sent to and will be resolved when we re-open in January.

Hope to see you in 2015!
