Landscapes from the Age of ImpressionismAre you off work or school Monday in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and looking for something entertaining to do? The Akron Art Museum will OPEN TO THE PUBLIC on Monday, January 16.

With the snow blanketing your gardens, escape the cold and stroll through the lush, colorful landscapes on view in the Akron Art Museum galleries. Don’t miss Landscapes from the Age of Impressionism, which includes influential works by impressionist precursors Courbet, Daubigny and Boudin as well as exquisite canvases by Monet, Caillebotte, Pissarro and Americans John Singer Sargent, Childe Hassam and others. This may be the first exhibition to present the well-known French impressionists with both their American colleagues and the earlier artists who set the example of taking canvases outdoors and working en plein air. Standard museum hours and gallery admission apply.
