About Artists of Rubber City
In 1978, Artists of Rubber City (AoRC) was founded by a group of University of Akron art students looking for places to display their work and for a way to stay connected. AoRC is a member-based visual art nonprofit with the mission to advocate for contemporary artists and art in the area. The group promotes the appreciation of art created by contemporary artists as a facet of the rich culture to be found in Northeast Ohio. Members have diverse backgrounds in visual art including painters, photographers, printmakers, fiber artists, ceramicists, media artists, graphic artists, sculptors, and jewelers.
