The Akron Art Museum has more than 10,000 new fans.
The museum dubbed Tuesday, Nov. 28, #GivingBACKTuesday. Through a 24-hour online campaign and the 500 patrons who visited that day, the museum signed up more than 10,000 new enrollees who took advantage of free or discounted one-year memberships.
The museum announced the numbers in a Thursday, Nov. 30, news release.
The final tabulation will take a few days to finalize, but the interest was extremely high, a museum spokesman said.
“At this point, we’ve far exceeded (10,000). It’s amazing. We had an incredible day,” he said.
