Throughout 2012\, visit ors will be treated to some of the very best of these attributes the Akron Art Museum has to offer\, both in terms of its holdings and its ability to recognize such works long before other museums have considered them.

It’s the museum’s 90th anni versary year\, and curators and staffers are looking to its past and its le gacy to demonstrate just how rich are its history and holdings\, and how ad roit they are at putting together new shows.
