January 2018 Toledo Museum of Art Program Highlights

Continuing Exhibitions

Glorious Splendor: Treasures of Early Christian Art
Through Feb. 18, 2018
Christian art borrowed heavily from non-Christian traditions in terms of its techniques, media, style and iconography. Glorious Splendor: Treasures of Early Christian Art traces these continuities through the most remarkable objects of the period: precious stones, metals and jewelry. The exhibition will feature some 30 masterpieces of Late Roman art, most of which have never been exhibited before in a museum. Drawing on private collections and TMA’s holdings, this exhibition will captivate viewers with its glittering gold and silver, stunning oversize carved garnets and rubies, and dazzling rings and necklaces. Glorious Splendor: Treasures of Early Christian Art is supported in part by Taylor Cadillac, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral, the TMA Ambassadors, Mary Lynch Jarrell and Paul A. Jarrell, James and Gregory Demirjian, Sotheby’s, Harold Jaffe Jewelers and the Ohio Arts Council, with additional support from 2017 Exhibition Program Sponsor ProMedica. Free admission.

Fired Up: Contemporary Glass by Women Artists
Through March 18, 2018, Glass Pavilion Galleries 2 and 3

The discovery of glass as a serious artistic medium in the 1960s – sparked during the Studio Glass Movement that originated at the Toledo Museum of Art – was monumental. Yet in its earliest decades, women faced an uphill battle in their demand for fair recognition of their contributions and work. In Fired Up: Contemporary Glass by Women Artists, more than 50 objects showcase the women who now rank among the most innovative and celebrated glass artists. Drawn from the Toledo Museum of Art’s renowned glass collection, with notable loans from private collectors, the works document nearly six decades of underappreciated influence, from the art that helped women forge a path in the Studio Glass Movement of the ‘60s to the ingenuity of 21st-century installations. The exhibition is sponsored by O-I; Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick; the Ohio Arts Council and with funds received in the memory of Dr. Edward A. and Mrs. Rita Barbour Kern. Free admission.
