Since 2015, The Arts Commission has hosted downtown Toledo’s popular event series— the 3rd Thursday Art Loop. With over 100 participating venues— ranging from restaurants, bars, galleries and shops offering exhibitions, live music, specials, and more— the themed, monthly evenings offer art, creativity and fun while also building a sense of community.
The 2019 Art Loop season kicks off on Thursday, April 18 with the theme “Poetry & Performance.” Stop by venues for local author’s meet up, open mics, and assorted performances. Visit Handmade Toledo for the annual Ode to the Zip Code Poetry reading contest, hosted in partnership with the Fair Housing Center, Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, and Toledo City Paper (for more details, see p.24 of this issue). The Imagination Station serves as this Art Loop’s Main Hub (museum admission is $5 after 5pm on Art Loop nights).
