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 arts nonprofit with the mission to advocate for contemporary artists and Ohio art.  The group promotes the appreciation and ownership of art created by contemporary artists as one 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. 

About the BOX Gallery: The BOX Gallery is an artist-run gallery owned by the Artists of Rubber City. It opened in October 2009 on the third floor of Summit Artspace, 140 E. Market St. in Akron.
