Calling all Grandmasters, International Masters, FIDE Masters, Candidate Masters, chess clubs, and chess enthusiasts. The Toledo Museum of Art is offering the perfect hang out for chess players, and those interested in the game, to come and face off against each other. The Cloister Gallery will transform into a chess playground, open to anyone who wants to play or watch and learn. The Museum will provide the sets; however, you can also bring your own and you can also see various chess boards from the World Chess Hall of Fame collection on display in the Play Time exhibit. If you are part of a chess club, feel free to make the Museum your summer gathering place.
Chess exhibitions will be held every Friday from 4-8pm through
September 4 in the Cloister Gallery at the Toledo Museum of Art,
2445 Monroe Street. These events are free and open to the public.
