The New Akron Art Museum

Andrea Kirsh, An Art Historian in Philly took a trip to see the Akron's new art addition to it's museum and put up a nice post about it on Artblog. So far the response to this project has been very positive. Akron, likely didn't have the cash to tear down half the city for the latest Gehry ,so it looks like they half to settle for a sensitive, but highly creative structure that just might work well as an art museum. As you can see, the design doesnt lack drama. It's the first project in the US by the Austrian firm, Coop Himmelblau.
