greatartescape_online_1200x630Don’t get cabin fever over the holidays. Go on a treasure hunt, see live performances or create your own work of art at the Toledo Museum of Art. You can do that and more during The Great Art Escape which takes place Dec. 27 through New Year’s Day (Jan. 1).

Sponsored in part by Taylor Cadillac, the week of events has become a holiday tradition for bringing together family, friends and holiday guests – or getting away from them. Most of the activities are free.

The Museum is introducing its new TMApp during the Great Art Escape. Available for free download for Android and iOS devices, the app was created with support in part from Buckeye Broadband.  Visitors can go use the app to go on a scavenger hunt in the galleries. More features will be added over the coming months.
