It’s summer and that means Art on the Mall. Come to The University of Toledo’s Main Campus and help celebrate the 23rd year of the juried art show Sunday, July 26, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The free, public event will have more than 100 booths featuring a multitude of media, including acrylic, glass, jewelry, mixed media, pen and ink, oil, photography, pottery, textile, watercolor, woodwork and more.
“We’ve got some really amazing artists returning and quite a few new talented people who will be joining us this year. There is sure to be something for everyone at Art on the Mall,” said Ansley Abrams-Frederick, director of alumni programming in the UT Office of Alumni Relations. “In addition, the venue of our beautiful campus is the perfect place to enjoy the day. Free parking, golf cart shuttles and no admission certainly make it very easy to drop in for a visit to the show.”
Each booth will have artwork available for sale by cash, or guests can pay with a credit card at the artist’s booth or at a credit card station in the Student Union.
Additionally, artists’ works will be juried by Dayton Art Institute representatives. Prizes will be granted to top artists, and the highest award, UT’s Best of Show, will be presented to the finest artist with an affiliation to the University — current students, faculty, staff, retirees, alumni or parents.
Food and beverages will be for sale from Karen Anne’s Kettle Corn, Opa! Gyros, Java Sensations, K & K Concessions, Taste Spuds, Jeanie’s Weenies and Let’s Go Nuts.
A beer garden featuring craft beer from Saranac also will be available for guests 21 and older with a valid ID.
Music will fill the air during the event with performances by UT faculty, alumni and students, and from musicians from the Toledo School for the Arts.
Free parking will be available in Lot 1 South, Lot 1 North, Lot 13 and Lot 10, with golf cart shuttle service to transport guests and their packages to and from Centennial Mall if needed.
Art on the Mall’s presenting sponsors are The Blade, Buckeye CableSystem and Huntington. Supporting sponsors include Homewood Press, Mail It and iHeartMEDIA.
