Continuing Exhibitions
What’s Wrong with Me? Art and Disease
Through Aug. 7, 2011, Hitchcock Gallery As part of an art history class, University of Toledo students selected 31 works to design an exhibition that explores the relationships between art, disease and human civilization. Most of the works are prints from the TMA collection. Admission is free.

The Egypt Experience: Secrets of the Tomb
Through Jan. 8, 2012, Lower Level Egyptian Gallery, Main Museum More than 150 objects spanning 3,000 years of history are on display, including objects from the Museum’s antiquities collection and from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Field Museum, Indiana University Art Museum and the Oriental Museum Institute of the University of Chicago. Admission is free for TMA members and children under 6 years of age; admission for nonmembers is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors over 65, and $5 for students ages 6 to 22.

PRIZM Creative Community Exhibition
Through Oct, 2, 2012, Community Galleries PRIZM Creative Community is a nonprofit organization that inspires artistic expression of its members. For this exhibition, the artist selected a word from an alphabetical list (e.g. “A” for “abstract” or “architecture”) and identified objects in the Toledo Museum of Art collection that related to that word. They then created their own work of art inspired by those objects.
