About Us

flags2Summit Artspace is a community art center bringing together in one location some of the best local artists, art education and arts organizations of the Greater Akron area. It is a project of the Akron Area Arts Alliance, a non-profit organization, promoting arts and cultural activities. Summit Artspace is committed to building public awareness of the value of arts and culture to the quality of life and the local economy. The Summit Artspace building, formerly the first site of the Akron Beacon Journal, houses the Summit Artspace Gallery, artist studios, the Akron Area Arts Alliance office, The Box Gallery and is the site of several art organizations as well as performance space workshop areas and meeting rooms. The facility is owned by the County of Summit, which has been a significant and valued supporter of Summit Artspace as community space. In 2016, Summit Artspace took over the operation of the Art Center on Tuscarawas and the Nine Muses Art Gallery in Barberton.
