Hand-painted signs are a product of a fascinating 150-year-old American history. What was once a common job has now become a highly specialized trade, a unique craft contending with technological advances. Sign Painters, directed by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon, stylistically explores this unacknowledged art form through anecdotal accounts from artists across the country including Ira Coyne, Bob Dewhurst, Keith Knecht, Norma Jeane Maloney and Stephen Powers.

Admission is free. While visiting the museum, make sure to view the Trenton Doyle Hancock exhibit that has been causing a lot of buzz. Akron Art Museum is located at 1 S High St, Akron, Ohio 44308.
