State of the Arts

Retro-style video games are making a comeback. Nintendo and Sega are reissuing classic game systems and even long-dormant Atari is coming back to market with a brand new console. On this week’s State of the Arts, we visit a tech company in Akron that makes its very own nostalgic game console, so small it takes a light touch and real concentration to master.

A new coloring book features public spaces in one Akron neighborhood. It’s a mural project called the Kenmore Imagineer and residents hope it will add a splash of color to Kenmore Boulevard.

It’s been a century since acclaimed French sculptor Auguste Rodin died. Museums around the world have a casting of his iconic work The Thinker, but the one at the Cleveland Museum of Art stands apart because of an act of violence that happened nearly 50 years after its creator's death.
