Saturday Spotlight on Ohio: Toledo Museum of Art

When I first started this blog I posted about places in Ohio I would like to visit. I have visited some of them since then, but there are still many places on my list. Now as my time here is dwindling, there are sights and sounds around the state I want to spotlight. Some are old-time favorites, others I have been introduced to only recently and the rest are places on my to-do list. These places include restaurants, museums, gardens and other institutions, all reasons why I truly do love this state.

My last installment was about Cedar Point in Sandusky. Up this week is the Toledo Museum of Art.

I love this museum, mostly for its glass heritage and collection. The mixture for studio glass was created here and now there is a wonderful showcase of glass in the Glass Pavilion across the street from the main museum.

Another perk is that the museum is free.

Currently at the museum is a display of Frank Stella’s Irregular Polygons. This is the first time 11 different irregular polygon paintings were show together in one room. To learn more about the display, which is open through July 24, follow this link: Irregular Polygons.

To visit or learn more about the museum, visit its website at www.toledomuseum.org. Its address is 2445 Monroe St., Toledo.
