PHOTO GALLERIES: Akron feels the Bern …and feels the Bill

For a couple of days, Akron took center stage in the Democratic primary challenge between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders. While former President of the United States Bill Clinton addressed a rally at the United Steelworkers Local 2 in Akron on the Saturday before Ohio’s primary, Sanders himself hosted a large rally at the Akron Civic Theatre the following Monday around midday.

The Devil Strip was present for both events and were fortunate to have photographer Shane Wynn, who was recently awarded a Knight Foundation Arts Challenge grant, on hand capturing our city’s moment in the political sun.
