Art on the Mall Canceled This Summer Due to COVID-19

The University of Toledo’s Art on the Mall will not take place this summer due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This year’s event would’ve been the 28th annual juried art fair featuring artists from around the country displaying and selling their creations in acrylic, glass, jewelry, mixed media, oil, pen and ink, photography, pottery, textiles, fibers, and many other forms.

“With the continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and for the safety of our alumni, artists, volunteers and community, The University of Toledo Alumni Association has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Art on the Mall juried art show that was scheduled for July 26,” Ansley Abrams-Frederick, director of alumni programming in the UToledo Office of Alumni Engagement, said.

This is the first time the University’s signature summer tradition has been canceled since it started nearly three decades ago.

“We thank our artists, sponsors, volunteers, community and friends, and appreciate their understanding during these difficult times,” Abrams-Frederick said. “We look forward to this event in the future.”
