About the Exhibition

The Akron Art Explorers group is hosted and organized by the Massillon
Museum and facilitated through the Boy Scouts of America. Student
members of the group are in high school and hail from all over Summit
County. For this exhibit there are selections from a previous project,
"Common Ground," as well as work from students of Standing Rock Cultural
Arts in Kent, Ohio.
Supervising the Akron Art Explorers are Alexandra Nicholis, MassMu
curator, and artists Jody Hawk, Bernadette Glorioso, and Todd V.

The Massillon Museum Explorers have been a club since April 2009.
Members come from greater Massillon, Jackson Township, Perry Township,
and Doylestown. They created the artwork for Studio M (an emerging
artist showcase at The Massillon Museum) while working with artists Scot
Phillips and Emily Vigil during "Do the Mu" art workshops. Work
influenced by Phillips uses found materials, collage,
screenprinting, spray paint and stencils. Artwork created with Vigil are

Studio M enhances the collaboration between the Museum and the
community by showcasing the artistic talents of local, regional, and
national artists. The series of five-week shows continues
throughout the year, selected by jurors from proposals submitted by
artists. Brochures containing guidelines and an application are
available by contacting the Massillon Museum at 330-833-4061 or
