At most museums, what you see on display is often just a fraction of an entire collection. An exhibit at The Canton Museum of Art through the end of October is taking a challenge and turning it into an opportunity to show much, much more.

Canton City Council has approved installing security cameras in the city’s center.  The plan is in response to an increase in people visiting downtown.

The 10-camera system will provide continuous surveillance of the heart of the city.  That’s the area Canton has been revitalizing with an arts district and the conversion of old commercial sites into urban-life-style lofts. The city wanted cameras two years ago but couldn’t afford the $80,000 price from a national vendor.
