We're a Stop on the Art Loop! 

Every third Thursday of the month

April - December

The Loop is Toledo’s signature monthly arts experience. Explore the downtown creative community through self-guided tours of the art, artists and spaces that inspire a vibrant Toledo. The Loop is a program of The Arts Commission, presented in partnership with the artists and participating venues who make it possible. Join us for a night of fun, science and creativity!
