Celebrate a Century


The Akron Art Museum served as the backdrop to our Akron Centennial Celebration. Clients, employees, and friends of the firm gathered on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 for food, drinks, and good company.

The Akron Art Museum first opened on February 1, 1922, as the Akron Art Institute. It was located in two borrowed rooms in the basement of the public library. Over the next quarter century, the museum has continued to enrich the lives of those in Northeast Ohio and beyond through modern and contemporary art. Its nationally recognized collection was documented through the publication of collection catalogues.  In 2007, its eighty-fifth year, the museum more than tripled in size with the opening of the new John S. and James L. Knight Building. Spanning three centuries, like the museum's collection, together they symbolize the museum's dual role as preserver of the past and herald of the future.The new museum was open to the public on July 17, 2007, and hosts visiting shows from national and international collections.
