The Akron Art Museum houses collections spanning from 1850 to the present day, a period that reflects the founding and growth of the City of Akron. To meet the increasing public interest in the museum’s programs and exhibitions, the museum commissioned the first public building in the United States designed by the internationally celebrated architecture firm, COOP HIMMELB(L)AU.

Building Expansion

The 63,300 square foot John S. and James L. Knight Building connects with the museum’s existing 1899 Building, a 21,000 square foot Renaissance revival structure, which originally served as the downtown Akron Post Office. A recent expansion dramatically increased the museum’s ability to originate and present special exhibitions and display major, rarely-seen works of art from its collection. This building also increases facilities for education programs for students of all ages and public programs for adults and families. The  Akron Art Museum is playing a vital role in the continuing renaissance of downtown Akron.
