Toledo Museum of Art Store offers holiday promotions
The Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) Store will offer several promotions this holiday season including double discount day, free parking and a limited-edition goblet and ornament.
Shoppers will want to mark their calendar for Nov. 30 when the Museum Store will provide Museum members an additional 10 percent off all eligible items in addition to the 10 percent Museum members already receive. And for the entire months of November and December, nonmembers who spend a combined $35 with the store, café or on exhibition tickets, will receive free parking. Parking is free for Museum members.
The Museum Store features a diverse and delightful selection of unique merchandise and specialty gifts inspired by the Toledo Museum of Art’s world-famous collection. From fine art books and supplies to apparel, children’s educational toys and books, and jewelry, the Museum store offers the perfect gift whether your tastes are classic or modern, elegant or whimsical.
Located in the Museum Store is Collector’s Corner, a gallery of original, signed works of art by more than 250 emerging and established regional artists for purchase. Collector’s Corner offers a range of quality works in all media at prices everyone can enjoy.
Among the featured holiday gift items include the limited-edition TMA 2018 Goblet. This exquisite goblet brings a modern aesthetic to the traditional glass blowing techniques established and refined during the Renaissance. Made with alabaster and jade glass color, each goblet contains subtle swirls and accents reminiscent of soft carving stones. Designed and produced by the Toledo Museum of Art’s Glass Studio Manager Alan Iwamura, each goblet features a blown cup, stem, and foot with ornamental wraps. The stunning proportions and color treatment of each goblet exemplify a harmonious blending of form and function.
Also available beginning November 1 is the limited edition 2018 Bloom Ornament. Just as the Dutch Golden Age painters brought canvas to life using the stroke of an oil tinged brush, former Guest Artist Pavilion Project (GAPP) artist Jonathan Michael Davis makes glass flourish using the same type of time-honored pigments that Frans Hals used. Inspired by the Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion and the current exhibition Frans Hals Portraits: A Family Reunion, these ornaments are meticulously shaped and melted to create a delicate handcrafted bloom. Each piece is textured and then brushed with oil paints to give accent and softness to the richly variegated tendrils. Every ornament has been thoughtfully created using borosilicate glass and traditional lampworking techniques.
