The Arts Commission events and programs offer a great opportunity for you or your business to be recognized in the community for its support of local arts programming. The Arts Commission hosts two signature fundraising events annually, which offer donors the opportunity to receive special recognition, ticket benefits, and take advantage of other opportunities available only to event sponsors. To review the benefits available at different giving levels, please review the Event Sponsor Benefits. The Arts Commission is proud to be able to offer flexible giving packages, so please feel free to contact us to discuss how we can personalize a giving program to best meet your needs or those of your business.
Proceeds of these events support The Arts Commission’s more than 50-year tradition of developing and promoting the arts in the greater Toledo community through programs such as Young Artists at Work, the Parkwood Gallery, ARTOMATIC 419!, Gallery Loop and the Congressional Exhibition, all of which benefit our local artists.
Every March a team of committed volunteers takes on The Mix theme, and imagines a new way to convey excitement, fun, creativity and entertainment to our community. The event typically involves multiple bands, interactive activities, catering to reflect the event theme, a silent auction of art work by local artists, all happening in locations specifically chosen to draw attention to Toledo’s underutilized spaces, and the artists who have chosen to build their careers in Downtown Toledo.
Hot Glass occurs in November in even-numbered years. This auction event draws together submissions from local, national, and international glass artists, for a four-week exhibition, followed by a gala auction event. Hot Glass 2012 provided over $95,000 in payments to glass artists, and raising $60,000 to support the programs and services of The Arts Commission.
The Art of Fine Living occurs in November in odd-numbered years. The live and silent auction draws together a collection of more than 100 auction items, all featuring the best our community has to offer in terms of fine dining, travel, recreation, art, and entertainment. Celebrity chefs create taste treats that keep the crowds coming back again and again. The Art of Fine Living raises over $80,000 to support The Arts Commission's programs and services.
