The Egypt Experience: Secrets of the Tomb

Admission is free for TMA members and children under 6 years of age; admission for nonmembers is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors over 65, and $5 for students ages 6 to 22. The exhibition is made possible by the generosity of TMA members and with support in part from Taylor Cadillac, Buckeye CableSystem and the sustainable grant program of the Ohio Arts Council.

Storytelling in Miniature
Through March 4, 2012, Works on Paper Galleries Approximately 140 miniature prints from the Renaissance through the modern era from the Toledo Museum of Art collection are featured. Some prints are so small that a magnifying glass is required to appreciate them fully. Artists represented include Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Charles Meryon and others. A free companion digital catalog is available online. Free admission.

European Expressionist and Cubist Works on Paper
Through March 11, 2012, Gallery 18 Organized by art history students at the University of Toledo and drawn from the TMA collection, this exhibition features prints, illustrated books and drawings from the early 20th century, including works by Picasso, Matisse, Kollwitz, Kirchner, Kandinsky and others. Free admission.

Small Worlds
Through March 25, 2012, Canaday Gallery Small Worlds approaches the idea of “small” from many perspectives through the work of five artists and sometimes the finished works themselves aren’t small at all. The microcosms created in these works of art deal with issues of scale, setting up an intimate interaction between object and observer. Artists include Gregory Euclide, Joe Fig, Charlie Kanwischer, Lori Nix and Tabaimo. A 65-square-foot Tumbleweed Tiny House, on display near the Monroe Street entrance to the Museum, also is part of the exhibition. A print publication and online interactive catalog accompany the exhibition. The exhibition is made possible by members of the Museum and supported in part by The Andersons and the Lathrop Company. Free admission.

The Toledo Museum of Art is a nonprofit arts institution funded through individual donations, foundation grants, corporate sponsorships, and investments.
