Barberton Better Block Photo Exhibit
September 15 – November 4, 2017

Summit Artspace’s Nine Muses Art Gallery
584 W. Tuscarawas Ave., Barberton

While the community was celebrating Barberton Better Block on July 28 and 29, photographers were snapping away to document a wonderful downtown event for posterity. Their work will be on display in the Meeting Space at Summit Artspace’s Nine Muses Art Gallery from Sept. 15 to Nov. 4. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

The event centered around Second Street in downtown Barberton. With the support of the Barberton Community Foundation, the City of Barberton and community partners, the event highlighted Barberton’s assets and increased awareness. Better Block showcased opportunity and encouraged entrepreneurial spirit in our community.

The purpose behind the Better Block concept is to work with cities, developers, and stakeholders to create quick, inexpensive, high-impact changes that improve and revitalize underused properties and highlight the potential for creating great “Complete Streets”.
