The symbolic insignia worn by The Toledo Museum of Art Aides is an exact copy of an ancient fused mosaic glass roundel on display in the Glass Gallery. The use of a circle indicates continuity and completion. Several concentric circles represent the radiation of creativity and knowledge. Worn with pride, this symbol is consistent with the mission statement of the Museum Aides.
Our Midwest region is a cook's paradise. Located on the shores of Lake Erie, we are blessed with an abundance of fresh fish, and our fertile soil produces a wide variety of vegetables and fruits. Ohio is known for its plentiful supply of beef, pork, and poultry, and during the crisp days of fall, local hunters provide us with deer, duck, and pheasant.
Entertaining in the Toledo area also mirrors the food of a wide variety of ethnic cultures. We are strongly influenced by the German, Greek, Hungarian, Mediterranean, Hispanic, and Polish heritages that exist in our diverse community.
With Midwest-zest, we are presenting over 200 recipes in our cookbook, Art Fare. Each triple-tested recipe will capture your imagination in a special way, and the aromas from the kitchen will become addictive.
Frequently referred to as the "Glass Capital of the World," Toledo is forever grateful to the Libbeys for bringing the glass industry to our community and establishing the Toledo Museum of Art.
