Volunteer Spotlight!

Natalie Gray

This month we celebrate Natalie Gray in our volunteer spotlight! Natalie is a graduate of Toledo School for the Arts and is now pursuing a degree at the University of Toledo in Communications with a focus on Public Relations.  She is also the Program Director of the UT radio station, 88.3 FM WXUT. Natalie works as the Alumni Relations Liaison at Toledo School for the Arts and on the Creative Placemaking team for The Arts Commission. Natalie started volunteering with The Arts Commission at Artomatic 419! in 2013 and has since donated her time to The Mix, Hot Glass and the Art Loop. “Volunteering is my way of supporting my local artists and promoting my city. Toledo has no shortage artists or opportunity and the Arts Commission brings people together to make art accessible. That is what I want in my community - That is why I volunteer.” Thank you for all you do, Natalie!

Volunteer Training

For the curious to the committed.

Join us Wednesday, June 7, 6-7:30PM for an info session and volunteer training for all Art Loop positions in the 2017 event season. We'll start our adventure at the Toledo Lucas County Public Library for an overview of the program. Our training goes mobile when we board an Art Loop bus to experience the route and stop at a few creative spaces along the way. Come find out how you can get involved!


Downtown Docent

Art Loop | Every 3rd Thursday | April -December

This position is for both new and seasoned volunteers who are very familiar with downtown Toledo. Downtown Docents team up with TARTA drivers to take to the road, welcoming guests aboard the bus and answering any questions folks might have about the event or our city. In order to have a well-trained team, we ask that interested volunteers sign up for two or more Loop events.


Street Crew

Art Loop | Every 3rd Thursday | April-December

The Loop is Toledo’s signature monthly arts experience. Loop guests are invited to explore the downtown creative community through self-guided tours of the art, artists, and spaces that inspire a vibrant Toledo. This is the perfect opportunity for those who love our city and want to canvas the streets touting all Toledo has to offer. New and seasoned volunteers are welcome! In order to have a well-trained team we ask that interested volunteers sign up for two or more Loop events.
