“THE ART OF Y” JURIED EXHIBITION 

BETTY AND HOWARD TAYLOR MAIN GALLERY | APRIL 9 – JUNE 26, 2021

Celebrating over 150 years of service, the Akron Area YMCA is a powerful association with a shared commitment to ignite youth empowerment, improve overall health and well-being, and demonstrate the importance of connections within our community. In that spirit, Summit Artspace is honoring the organization’s milestone year by exhibiting artists who have created pieces inspired by the letter “Y” in any way. “This exhibition is a nice collection of artworks created in a wide variety of genre, media, and style,” notes juror and artist Sharon Frank Mazgaj. “Some of the artist’s work literally depicts the letter “Y” as its subject, others use the Downtown Akron YMCA building to represent, and others offer a more abstract idea of what the YMCA or some other ‘why’ means to them.” 

Winners for “The Art of Y “are: 

1st Place: “The Y” by Emily Kohmann 

2nd Place: “Y NOT” by Stephanie Leonardi 

3rd Place: “150 Reasons Y” by Lisa Thomas
