Community Gallery

The TMA Community Gallery, located in the west wing of the Museum’s lower level, hosts free exhibitions of artwork created by select groups in the greater Toledo region.

Typically, the artists work to an “art challenge” inspired by a specific exhibition or by the Museum’s collection. Participating groups (sorry, no solo artists) are both professional and amateur organizations, as well as some groups in the TMA ArtReach program for underrepresented populations. Eclectic and diverse, the exhibitions feature contemporary works in a variety of media.
