Akron Art Museum shows "Prayers for Peace"

The Akron Art Museum (One South High, 330.376.9185, akronartmuseum.org) is currently showing “Prayers for Peace,” an animated video that New York-by-way-of-Medina visual artist Dustin Grella created to honor his brother Devin, killed in the conflict in Iraq. Grella, who got his undergraduate degree from the University of Akron Myers School of Art, took footage from his brother’s laptop computer that he had with him in Iraq and used a slate chalkboard to hand-draw images. As a way of honoring Veterans' Week, starting today and running through Nov. 14, the Akron Art Museum will offer free admission to veterans and active military personnel.
