Art Notes – June 2022

Come back to Crosby Fest
One of the artistic highlights on Toledo’s calendar, the Crosby Festival of the Arts, has wowed audiences and provided a platform for artists from the area and around the country since 1965. Held at the Toledo Botanical Garden (formerly known as Crosby Gardens) the 56th annual event will take place the weekend of Friday, June 24. With work by dozens of artists on display, this all-ages event will also feature food, live musical performances and more. For the latest information on the event, visit crosbyfest.com.

Celebrating SuperDads
Father’s Day is almost here! The popular holiday, conceived in 1910 (by a woman named Sonora Todd, who was raised by a single dad), wasn’t nationally observed until 1972. Don’t miss the chance to show your father that he’s your real superhero by taking him to SuperDad Weekend on Sunday, June 19 when The Art on Market Shoppes will host a special event to celebrate father figures. Stop on by and create some art together! 10am-3pm. 201 S. Erie St. 419-913-1815. facebook.com/Artonmarket
