MORE ABOUT ARTWALK
ARTWALK means events in downtown Akron! Artwalk is always the first Saturday of the month, 5-9 pm. Summit Artspace and its Artwalk partners are underwriting the trolley so you can travel in style and comfort! At Summit Artspace you will find artists working in their studios. Many of the studios double as shops so you’ll be able to browse the artwork for sale. There are often special events with music.
Galleries are open and admission is free. The galleries will regularly exhibit new and wonderful shows that include photography, painting, sculpture, collage, glass, found objects and fiber artistry.
FREE TROLLEY TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM ARTWALK LOCATIONS! (Please note: Akron Soul Train, Bluff Blue Door and Gallery C are currently not on the trolley route.)
