strengthen the arts, artist community, and cultural assets of Toledo. Last
August, an “Arts Zone” was identified as a point of focus due to the many
existing galleries and art studios in the neighborhood.

Next month, the Third Thursday Art Walk will occur on October 16 and will
be the final Art Walk of the calendar year.
