UT's Art on the Mall to take place Sunday

Art on the Mall, an iconic tradition for more than 20 years at the University of Toledo, returns Sunday, July 28, 2013. The free, public event takes place 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Centennial Mall on UT’s Main Campus where more than 112 booths will feature unique works of acrylic, glass, jewelry, mixed media, oil, photography, pottery, textiles, basketry, watercolor, wood, and more.

Throughout the day, guests can enjoy not only works of art but also music, live pottery demonstrations, children’s activities, food, and, new this year, a beer garden. Guests who are 21 and older with a valid ID can buy three types of beer from Great Lakes Brewing Company.

“We have some folks who have been with us for a long time and we also have some new artists, which is great,” said Ansley Abrams-Frederick, director of alumni programming in the Office of Alumni Relations. “It’s exciting to see some work that you haven’t seen before.”

Artists have the chance to win awards and guests can purchase art. UT’s Best of Show is the highest award and goes to the best artist with an affiliation to the University — current students, faculty, staff, retirees, alumni, and parents are eligible.

The UT Ceramics Department will have pottery demonstrations near its booth where guests can watch them work and ask questions. There also will be stations for children to create their own art and take it home or get their faces painted.

Guests will be entertained by music throughout the day with performances from the Toledo School for the Arts; the Jazz Collective with Christy Lanning from 10 a.m. to noon, Afro-Caribbean Dance and Drum from noon to 2 p.m., and Glass City Steel from 2 to 5 p.m.

Food vendors will be open including previous years’ favorites: Karen Anne’s Kettle Corn, Opa! Gyros, Everhart SnoBiz, Maui Wowi, K & K Concessions, and Let’s Go Nuts. Two new booths will join the event this year: Asia Fusion Elite and Jeanie’s Weenies.

Parking is free for guests in Lot 1 South, Lot 1 North and Lot 13 with free shuttles provided for rides to and from Centennial Mall that also can help transport large purchases if needed.
