Art on the Mall returns to UToledo July 28

Art on the Mall will return to The University of Toledo’s Centennial Mall Sunday, July 28, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This summer marks the free, public event’s 27th year of showcasing a variety of art on Main Campus. Attendees will have the opportunity to view and purchase all kinds of art, including acrylic, glass, pen and ink, oil, mixed media, metals, photography, ceramics, textiles, watercolor, woodwork, jewelry and more.

“People can expect a lovely setting, a very comfortable, walkable show that has amazingly talented artists displaying beautiful works of art,” said Ansley Abrams-Frederick, director of alumni programming in the UToledo Office of Alumni and Annual Engagement.

A total of 115 artists will have artwork for sale by cash, or guests can pay using a credit card at the artist’s booth or credit card station located in the Thompson Student Union.

Throughout the day, visitors can enjoy live jazz music and food from a number of vendors. There also will be a beer garden for guests 21 and older with a valid ID.

In addition, Art on the Mall offers a young artist area for children to try their hands at creating their own masterpieces.

More than 13,000 people attended last year’s show.

“The artists love the show because of our supportive and receptive community, ” Abrams-Frederick said. “They love our volunteers and know that the people attending the show really appreciate their work. It’s a great show with wonderfully talented artists in a beautiful setting.”

Art on the Mall is a juried show with a number of cash prizes, including the UToledo Best in Show, which is presented to an artist with an affiliation to the University.

Free parking is available in parking in lot 1 south, lot 1 north and lot 13. A golf cart shuttle service is available to transport guests and their purchases to and from Centennial Mall.

Art on the Mall is supported by community sponsors 13abc, The Blade, Mail It and 101.5 The River.
