New exhibit at art museum earns praise; see it for free this summer with your Zip Card July 6 - Oct. 7

Ghanaian artist El Anatsui has taken a variety of discarded metals and created more than a dozen large-scale contemporary works that now dominate exhibit space throughout the Akron Art Museum, located at One South High St.

The pieces in the “Gravity and Grace” exhibit, which continues through Oct. 7, are described as “artistic alchemy at its finest” in a July 1 Cleveland Plain Dealer article. Along with the article, which notes that the “ambitious scale and fluid transitions of color (in the exhibit) recall the bigness of American Abstract Expressionist painting,” is an interview with the artist himself, conducted during his recent visit to Akron.

Through UA’s special partnership with the Akron Art Museum, faculty, staff and students currently have free admission to the museum to see this and other works on display.

The museum is located at One South High St., two blocks north of Quaker Square. For more information, call ext. 7429.

Location: Akron Art Museum, One South High St.

You and up to three others can see one of America’s most well-known folk singers, Arlo Guthrie, at Akron’s Lock 3 on Saturday, July 7, at 9 p.m. for free. That’s a savings of $40 over what the public would pay for tickets.

Just show your Zip Card at the gate and you and up to three family and friends will be admitted for free as part of the University's exclusive summer-long uArts promotion with the city of Akron, the Akron Art Museum and others. See all the uArts events planned this summer.

The July 7 concert marks the beginning of the Arlo Guthrie – Guthrie Family Reunion tour. Over the next six weeks, Guthrie, his son, Abe, and other family members will perform throughout the United States and Canada in honor of family patriarch, Woody Guthrie, who would be 100 on July 14. The Guthries will perform some of Woody's songs, new material written by family members and some of Arlo’s best-known songs. Visit the Arlo Guthrie website to learn more.

Opening at 7 p.m. will be Hey Mavis. The group formed when the husband-and-wife team of Laurie Michelle Caner (banjo/vocals/songwriting) and Ed Caner (fiddle/viola) served as artists-in-residence in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in nearby Peninsula.
