The Akron Art Museum is expanding its digital experience with the help of a grant from the John S. Knight Foundation.

The grant was awarded to fund 12 projects across the country that connect audiences to artwork through technology.

The museum’s project is called “The Curator is In” and will focus on the relationship between artwork in the museum and how it got there.

Mark Masuoka is the executive director of the museum.
