connection to art, including artists, art collectors, arts organizations, and art lovers were invited to
contribute items. It was created to coincide with Time Capsules, a related exhibit of art by Terry
Klausman, Bret Hines, and Gwen Waight. The exhibit was installed at Summit ArtSpace during the
months of February and March 2015.
The capsule was closed on April 13, 2015 at a ceremony at the Akron-Summit County Public Library
attended by many of the contributors. It will remain in the Special Collections Division of the AkronSummit County Public Library until 2065 upon which time it will be opened.
