Art in the Park

When the Akron Art Museum decided to promote an exhibit focused on depictions of nature, what better place to promote it than in the nearby Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

The CVNP has averaged 2.8 million visitors over the past two decades, placing it among the 10 most visited national parks in the United States.

But rather than just putting up signs or banners promoting its nature exhibit, the museum took a painting from the collection and attached it to two posts along the towpath trail that bisects the park.

This painting, titled Landscape with Yellow Clouds, is shown complete with a museum-quality frame and description. It is just like being at the exhibit.

The trail in this photograph on the left leads to the Botzum station of the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.
