Things might be quiet inside the Akron Civic Theatre, but things outside are about to become a lot more exciting.
The historic theater in downtown Akron announced Tuesday, Sept. 15, that it is adding large-scale outdoor murals — by internationally known artists — to its surrounding area. The effort is part of the theater’s Staging the Future capital campaign aimed at beautifying downtown. The initiative comes as the city’s construction and transformation of Main Street is finishing up.
Murals will adorn the exterior walls of the Civic facing South Main Street and West Bowery Street. Additional works by regional artists
