New Nature Photography Exhibit Announced
Michigan-based photographer Bryce Denison returns to the National Center for Nature Photography gallery at Secor Metropark with a new exhibit featuring photographs of flora from Central and North America.
The exhibit is open now through Friday, March 30. Hours are Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free. The Photography Center is inside Secor Metropark, 10001 Central Ave., Berkey.
The exhibit celebrates Denison’s search for beauty in nature combined with information about how Native Americans used flowers, trees and various plants as food and medicine. The show, featuring more than 60 large, hand-printed and framed images, is a follow-up to his exhibit of fauna images displayed last year at the center.
Denison is an award-winning photographer, noted lecturer, author and artist who has traveled extensively to acquire the images visitors will see in this show.
The son of a professional hunting and fishing guide who grew up in the outdoors, he has aimed his camera at iconic landscapes, spectacular architecture, wildlife in its natural habitat and people from all walks of life. He holds a BFA in applied photography from the College for Creative Studies and a master’s degree from Wayne State University, where he spent many years as a professor. He has been the director of Midwest Photography Workshops for the last 40 years.

Build Toledo Opens At Imagination Station
How do skyscrapers reach such amazing heights? What architecture would you recreate in the Glass City? Who should create the next sculpture? Where should the next bridge span the Maumee River? Build Toledo, sponsored by Lathrop, Imagination Station’s newest temporary exhibition, inspires visitors to create their vision for our city as they become city planners, architects, engineers, bridge designers and community artists.
Open through Sunday, April 15, Build Toledo, merges history, science, engineering and art into one fascinating exploration of the structures and works of art that make our city unique.
Future architects will discover how downtown Toledo’s skyscrapers are designed to withstand forces of nature like wind and gravity to remain towering above the streets below, then see how high they can build a high-rise of their own with LEGOs or Big Blue Blocks.
Budding structural engineers can use K’Nex to combine form and function as they construct beautiful bridges that stand the test of time, allowing people and vehicles to move safely around the city.
Visitors can contribute to a collaborative piece of art as they consider how Toledo’s murals, painted frogs and unique sculptures help tell the story of the city’s history, neighborhoods and people.

Toledo Museum Of Art Offers The Mummies
The Toledo Museum of Art will feature The Mummies: From Egypt to Toledo in the Canaday Gallery through May 6.
In 1906, the founders of the Toledo Museum of Art, Edward Drummond Libbey and Florence Scott Libbey, visited Egypt, where they purchased a pair of Egyptian mummies as part of a collection of artifacts. Due to conservation issues and ethical considerations surrounding the display of human bodies, these mummies are only occasionally on view. This special installation will trace the history of Egyptian mummies, from their lives and the burial rituals associated with them in Ancient Egypt to their rediscovery during the Napoleonic era and the Egyptomania craze that followed. Egyptian artworks from the Museum’s collection and loans from other institutions will help situate the mummies in their historical context. The exhibition will also explore several intersecting issues for TMA and other cultural museums related to the collecting and display of these fascinating and significant objects, including whose mummies are these, do they belong in an art museum and what can we learn from them?
Admission to the exhibition is free for museum members and $10.00 for nonmembers. Discounted tickets are available for seniors, college students and military personnel ($7.00) and ages 5-17 ($5.00). Admission for school groups is free.
