Devo co-founder opens exhibit

The big event in town is the opening of Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia, with a talk by the artist at 2 p.m. at Akron-Summit County Public Library, followed by a free opening party at 3 at Akron Art Museum. (The Devo co-founder will also receive a key to the city, although he said he doesn’t know what it unlocks.) Myopia is being co-presented by the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, so be sure to travel north at some point before Aug. 28 to see the other half. Read our review of the show, which puts Mothersbaugh’s endless and eclectic vision on full display, in Sunday’s Life section. www.akronartmuseum.org.
