2020 Season: Winds of Change

Now open for the 2020 season

Tour the Manor House and Gardens to view Winds of Change.

America in the aftermath of World War I was defined by expansive social change that influenced the all aspects of life, including work, social activities, politics and culture. The Seiberling family, like many Americans, experienced and reacted to the changes happening around them – women’s suffrage, prohibition, an influx of immigrants, rapidly changing technology, a volatile presidential election and evolving fashion and music -- in a decade fraught with both excess and reform. In a surprisingly familiar reflection of life then and now, Winds of Change encompasses a Manor House exhibit that addresses the changes experienced by Akronites in the 1920s and how many of those same issues continue to impact the city today. 

Winds of Change in the gardens features 13 unique kinetic sculptures created by five of local female artists, in celebration on the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage.
