Today I had the pleasure of touring the new Bud and Susie Rogers Garden at the Akron Art Museum. The garden and event space will be open to the public on July 16 - with one heck of a kick-off party planned for that day! A few of us out in the community got an inside view, along with lots of cool information on the process, this morning. Here are some sneak peek images of the space, as they wrap up the finishing touches on this incredible new public garden.
If you click here, you can read Mary Beth Breckenridge's story about it for the Akron Beacon Journal. (By the way, that is my favorite thing I ever said that was quoted in the newspaper!)
The public opening will be held on July 16. For more information on that, click here.
A hearty, public "Thank You!" is in order, to the Akron Art Museum and to Bud and Susie Rogers, for the desire to provide a beautiful and peaceful public space for the community, in the heart of downtown!
