Akron Art Museum Acquires work by Linus Borgo

Museum Acquisition

Linus Borgo's "Le Cygne" has been acquired by the Akron Museum of Art, OH. The Akron Museum of Art has served as a vital institution of the Midwest for over a century, supporting and celebrating art in America and abroad.


"Le Cygne," included in Borgo's debut solo exhibition in New York, explores the intertextuality that runs throughout the artist's work. Directly referencing a 19th century statue depicting the Greek myth of Leda and the swan, the work also includes reference to Borgo's training in ballet tradition, as well as "Swan Lake," another tale of transformation that centers the swan as a motif.
