Through its InsideOut project, the Akron Art Museum has reproduced more than 30 artworks from its collection and installed them in neighborhoods and parks throughout the city. Mactac (Stow, Ohio) provided the film and overlaminates used to create the reproductions.
Central Graphics (Akron) reproduced the art through careful color matching and production, custom framed the works, and installed them in six neighborhoods, on streets, parks, and other unexpected outdoor locations. They chose Mactac REBEL and PERMACOLOR ColorGard LUV overlaminate as the media for the reproductions. REBEL is a versatile, high-performance media that is durable both indoors and outdoors. PERMACOLOR ColorGard LUV protects the media from weather and UV conditions and enhances the colors used in the reproductions.
"The InsideOut art projectis a fun idea that opened up the museum to the community," says Chad Kress, Central Graphics. "To maintain the integrity of the original artwork, we needed to use products that would print well and retain perfect adhesion through the changing seasons."
