Through Jan. 10, 2016 | Canaday Gallery

Little Dancer of Fourteen Years, on loan from the Clark Art Institute of Williamstown, Massachusetts, occupies center stage in this exhibition that revolves around Hilaire Germain Edgar Degas (1834-1917), one of France’s leading Impressionists. Other works by Degas on the subject of ballet, including bronze sculptures and paintings, will be shown. Among them are TMA’s bronze Study in Nude of Little Dancer Aged Fourteen and pastel The Dancers, as well as important works on loan from the Museé d’Orsay in Paris, the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the National Gallery of Art and The Phillips Collection, both in Washington, D.C. The exhibition is presented in celebration of The Toledo Ballet’s 75th annual performance of “The Nutcracker” and will include a section of memorabilia and costumes from the ballet. Free admission. Degas and the Dance is sponsored in part by Welltower, Inc., Christie’s, and Taylor Cadillac. Additional funding for the exhibition is provided by members of the Toledo Museum of Art and through the sustainability grant program of the Ohio Arts Council.

Through Feb. 14, 2016 | Hitchcock Gallery

Throughout history the city has taken on many visual guises: from romantic images of bright electronic signs reflected in the eyes of someone in awe of its grandeur or steam rising from a sewer grate on a cold winter’s day, to darker views of urban tragedy and the alienation of a life lived amongst strangers. These visions suggest a multitude of experiences for viewers to contemplate, whether they know the life of the city themselves or have only ever imagined it. The themes represented in this exhibition—Architecture & Renewal, Economics & Society, and A Day in the City—are vital and interacting parts of the complex phenomenon that is The City. Architecture is the physical backbone of a city, economics drives the architecture and businesses that help the city to thrive, and the leisurely activities of daily life keep the economy growing. From grand views of famous boulevards to modest glimpses of anonymous corners, from scenes of growth and prosperity to images of decline and disrepair, the works in this exhibition catalog the extraordinary and spectacular life of the city. This exhibition was curated by the University of Toledo’s Art Museum Practices class.
