Who is AoRC?

Artists of Rubber City is more than just a club and our members are more than just artists. Based in Akron, Ohio, Artists of Rubber City was established by a group of recent graduates of The University of Akron.  We are a network of working artists and art lovers who enjoy supporting each other's creative endeavors.  We hope to connect the Akron community to contemporary art and to connect artists to each other.
