DEVO mural unveiled at Akron Civic Theater on South Main Street

AKRON, Ohio - The DEVO Art Installation was unveiled in front of the Akron Civic Theater on Saturday afternoon. 

A crowd gathered to celebrate the unveiling, featuring the iconic, Akron-native rock band. 

The mural was commissioned by the Akron Civic Theater through a grant from the Akron-Summit Convention and Visitors Burea in an attempt to beautify vacant buildings on S. Main Street.

Standing approximately 16 feet high and 14 feet wide, the art showcases a photo of the band taken during a rehearsal break while filming "Satisfaction". 

DEVO was selected as the new face of the building because of the theater's "long history" of hosting legendary musical acts, some of them from its hometown.
