Who is Amy Mothersbaugh Roos?

Amy Mothersbaugh Roos is an American artist and gallerist, owner of the Studio 2091 Gallery located in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. She is the younger sister of Devo co-founders Mark Mothersbaugh and Bob Mothersbaugh. Mothersbaugh Roos has been an important element of the Ohio cultural landscape. Her gallery, Studio 2091, exhibits artwork by Ohio artists as well as both national and international artists, with a strong focus on whimsy, creative processes and originality. She is also dedicated to developing the creative skills and promoting the artistic education of young people, notably in the Summit County Region of Ohio. An accomplished artist herself, Mothersbaugh Roos was recently nominated by the Akron Zoo to execute nine large-scale murals which are scheduled for completion in April 2012.

Mothersbaugh Roos's importance in the art community is also reflected in her work organizing multiple charitable exhibitions for the City of Cuyahoga Falls. The "Water Tile Project" is a current exhibition which includes over three hundred 6" x 6" painted tiles realized by an international panel of artists. This project's objective is to raise money for The Nature Conservancy for Wildlife and Water Reclamation in the Gulf.

Amy M. Roos's large scale mural project for The Akron Zoo is nearly completed and now encompasses 30 panels and 10,000 feet of wall space. The murals and 'The Journey to the Reef' exhibition will be open to the public on May 26.
