Lindsay Akens spoke on the Arts Commission.
In 1977, Toledo was the first city in Ohio to adopt a One Percent for Art program which allocates a portion of City funds for public art. Some of those funds support The Arts Commission which compiled the city’s first comprehensive local arts calendar beginning in 1960. By the end of the decade, the organization was aiding in public art investments at Crosby Gardens (now Toledo Botanical Gardens). Come learn about the vital role that The Arts Commission has played in the cultural vibrancy of the City of Toledo, not only through Art in Public Places, but also the Art Loop, Momentum Festival and Young Artists At Work.
