Current Exhibits:

Brandon Slewion
Exhibit dates: Jan. 10 – Feb. 14 | Maumee Branch
Pivot! Slewion’s abstract take on patience and work reflect pivotal moments throughout the artist’s life. From his childhood in DC to transitioning days following college in Toledo he combines his signature mannequin motif with colorfully grotesque portraits to capture the raw emotion of growing pains.

Local History and Genealogy Online Exhibit
Toledo’s Black History
This Black History Month, we’re celebrating the lives and stories of Toledo’s own Black community in a new online exhibition. Learn about the people, events, and activism that shaped the growth of Toledo’s Black community and discover resources from our archives that examine local race relations over time.

Interested in displaying your work at the Toledo Lucas County Public Library? We encourage you to submit a proposal at the link below. The Library selects displays to share a variety of artistic mediums, styles, and points of view within the community. Art to be displayed should adhere to local community standards and be appropriate for both youth and adult audiences.

Please note—we receive far more submissions than our modest spaces allow.
