Dorothy Price at the opening of Indigenous Beauty: Masterworks of American Indian Art from the Diker Collection

Dorothy Price was one of Toledo’s great patrons of the arts. As an enthusiastic supporter of the Toledo Museum of Art, Dorothy advanced the Museum’s purpose of art education by supporting programs for all ages, especially for children and students. Much of what she provided was given anonymously—like her underwriting of Great Performances in the Great Gallery—but recently, she allowed us the pleasure of recognizing her gifts, including an ancient sarcophagus she purchased and gave to the Museum just a month ago as well as supporting the exhibition Indigenous Beauty: Masterworks of American Indian Art from the Diker Collection. Below is just a sample of the artworks the Museum has been able to acquire thanks in part to her generosity. Dorothy’s optimism and energy were infectious; she will be greatly missed.

    One of my musical projects, the Old West End Baroque Ensemble, performed as ensemble in residence at the Museum for several years. We were supported by an anonymous donor. I did eventually find out who that donor was. You can guess that it was indeed Dorothy Price. I am eternally grateful to her for helping make those concerts happen, especially as we hadn’t even met at that point. I am glad that I had the opportunity to express my thanks to her personally for her support, and for the many artistic projects in the Toledo Community she made possible. We are so much richer for her contributions and inspiration.
