“Given current circumstances, the Toledo Museum of Art staff
reimagined what this year’s Great Art Escape festivities could
look like,” said Maria Iafelice, the Museum’s youth and
family programs manager. “We’re excited to be able to offer
visitors a combination of onsite and online experiences as part
this annual, winter tradition.”
New to this year’s activities is an outdoor “glowing garden”
featuring illuminated ornamental flowers called Astro
Botanicals. These large-scale, color-changing sculptures are
designed by California-based fabric artist Stan Clark. This
free, outdoor experience will take place during Museum hours
from Saturday, Dec. 26 through Saturday, Jan. 2, 2021 and
is weather permitting.
TMA’s affinity group dedicated to inclusive and innovative
programming that engages new audiences, has created a
one-of-a-kind gallery hunt inspired by art and reflection. The
guide is filled with ideas and activities to see as you explore
the Museum and create your own resolution or goals for the year
ahead. Participants who complete the hunt will be entered into a
raffle to win a $25 TMA gift card; guides will be available at
the Information Desks.
The Great Art Escape is also visitors’ last opportunity
to view both Yayoi Kusama: Fireflies on the Water and The
Path to Paradise: Judith Schaechter’s Stained-Glass Art.
Both exhibitions close Sunday, Jan. 3, 2021. For a complete list

Admission to the Toledo Museum of Art is free. Parking is also
