I think this event is going to be a lot of fun. The museum is not normally open on thursday evenings, so it's going to be a great and somewhat intimate way to check out all of the new exhibitions. That, plus some live entertainment and drinks... it should be a great way to start off your weekend! :)

Sounds like fun, will try and attend.
"Come to ARTOBERFEST tomorrow at The Toledo Museum of Art and bid in the silent auction to win stunning beer/wine glasses created by TMA's extremely talented master glass artist, Jeff Mack!!! "
Anybody else watching Game of Thrones? This is NOT a non sequitur: I find myself looking at the medieval glassware in the interior scenery backgrounds. Their goblets and bottles look like some of the above!
come to our event tomorrow viola! :)
This sounds like fun. I wonder if I could find a friend to come with!
To my fellow art aficianados: You know. Manet at TMA is a once in a lifetime exhibit for most of us. The exhibit is here until January 1st then moves on to London. That's it. Toledo, OH and London, England.
We saw the exhibit today and are still talking about it. It is on par with the Rubens exhibit years ago. Not that the two artists have anything in common but the fact that both exhibits are/were of great masters and were here and only one other place in the world.
That demonstrates the high regard for our beloved museum. Even if you don't think you'd be that interested in "some old guy's art", do yourself a favor; take the teen age and adult kids to TMA for this exhibit. Read the prologue on the wall of each gallery. Read the placards beside each piece. And, spend the extra $3 for the audio tour (take the earbuds you use for your iPod/iPhone/Android/etc. Not only will the sound be better but you then needn't worry about who's head the museum furnished headphones have been wrapped around) that makes the whole experience so much better.
It is time well spent.
