Toledo Museum of Art
The Toledo Museum of Art was founded in 1901. The seven incorporators included an attorney, an architect, an industrialist, a realtor, a journalist and two artistsâ€¹each focused on their shared vision of creating an institution that would enhance the community with art and art education. More than a century later, the Toledo Museum of Art is considered one of the finest museums in the country, both for the quality and the comprehensiveness of its collection. The collection transcends temporal, geographical and cultural boundaries. More than 30,000 works of art represent American and European painting, the history of art in glass, ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian works, Asian and African art, medieval art, sculpture, decorative arts, graphic arts, and Modern and contemporary art.
