HEARD•AKRON -- Akron, OH


Saturday and Sunday HEARD•AKRON took over Northeast OH through the generous support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Ohio Arts Council and Akron Civic Commons. We attended the performance on Sunday outside of the Akron Art Museum. The performance features "sound suits" created by artist Nick Cave which have been on display at the Akron Art Museum since February and will be displayed through the beginning of June. The wearable sculptures created by Cave are made of raffia and each is made up of two dancers. The band, vocalists, and dancers were all local performers that brought the sounds suits to life for the few hundred people in attendance. 

We found out about this event through Facebook and I'm so glad that we decided to attend. The weather was perfect and the performance was delightful. From the vocalists entering the performance space to the last sound suit exiting back into the museum, the total run of the show was about thirty minutes. We arrived 40 minutes early and The Bud & Susie Rogers Garden was already pretty full. As you can see in the photo above people enjoyed the performance from all sides including the parking deck across the street.

We were standing in the first row of the standing room only section in the back of the garden facing the parking deck.
