Weathervane Playhouse to Host Ribbon-Cutting Event for the Merriman Valley's Collaboration with the Akron Art Museum

Thursday, July 28, 2016 5:41:00 PM

Event to Include Food Trucks and Trolley

To kick off to the Akron Art Museum’s Inside|Out exhibit in the Merriman Valley, Weathervane Playhouse will hold a food truck rally (with trolley rides provided to the other art installation sites) for the ribbon-cutting event for the Playhouse's neighborhood. The food trucks are provided in conjunction with Rubber City Radio Group and the trolley from the City of Akron and Akron Art Museum. The event will be held at Weathervane Playhouse on Wednesday, Aug. 10 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Inside|Out brings high-quality art reproductions from the Akron Art Museum's collection to various neighborhoods around our area. Weathervane is the lead partner in the Merriman Valley. Other installation sites include five Summit County Metro Park locations and Merriman Valley businesses Pub Bricco, R.Shea Brewery, Blimp City Bikes, and The Valley Café. All are taking part in the installation of “art in unexpected places.” 

The Merriman Valley is part of an August-to-November installation in the communities of Goodyear Heights, South Akron (Summit Lake), the Merriman Valley, and the city of Kent. Community partners other than Weathervane include the R.I.G.H.T. Committee, South Street Ministries, Let’s Grow Akron, Summit Metro Parks, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Main Street Kent, and Kent State University.
