"Beginning Feb. 17, the museum no longer will be open on Tuesdays. It already is closed on Mondays"

The Akron Beacon Journal reports that the Akron Art Museum, "facing a roughly 25 percent decline in its endowment, will close on Tuesdays, lay off employees and cut some other workers' hours." The number of exhibitions at the museum next year will also drop to eight or nine, down from 15 this year.
