We're heading over to Ohio to visit family. I figured today would be a good day to highlight one of the hidden gems of Toledo, The Toledo Museum of Art.
A couple things set this museum apart and make it worth a visit. First, they decided they couldn't bring the most expensive pieces to Toledo. Instead, they created exhibits with artists related to the masters' works. If they can't bring in the most important Monet, they'll bring a smaller one in and then highlight artists who influenced them and who they, in turn, influenced.
Their website is another admirable creation. They highlight art each week in blog posts, reviewing the pieces in their collection and the traveling exhibitions.
I suggest checking out the website, at the least, and if you can, visit the museum. It is well worth a visit.
