This will be the fourth year that PRIZM Creative Community has sponsored the exhibition as a service to the community. “ Special thanks to The Arts Commission of Greater Toledo who is the host venue for this popular exhibit.” Being able to display the Salon show in close proximity to the Museum is an added convenience for art aficionados who make sure they attend both exhibitions.
