It’s Close at Akron Art Museum

Enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at the new Akron Art Museum exhibit “Familiar Faces: Chuck Close in Ohio Collections,” which brings together 37 of the artist’s works.

In It’s Close at Akron Art Museum, Close talks about his life and art. His friends, among them Linda Rosenkranz and her husband, Christopher Finch, talk about their relationship with the artist. Rosenkranz is the subject of “Linda,” Close’s 9-foot-tall painting permanently housed at the museum, while Finch is an artist and author of the book “Chuck Close: Work.”

Sole funding for this project is provided by   Summa Foundation
