A Morning with Author Amy Webb Hosted by TMA

The Toledo Museum of Art in partnership with The Ability Center of Greater Toledo, is hosting a special event with book author Amy Webb on Saturday, July 23 from 9:30am to noon for visitors. 

The Cincinnati artist and author is the creator of the “This Little Miggy Stayed Home,” her personal home blog where she writes about fashion, disability advocacy and weekly roundups of her favorite things. 

Webb’s work has been featured in numerous magazines such as DesignMom, MotherMag and Lunch Lady Magazine. As a disability advocate, Webb has used her platform as an author and a mother to bring awareness to children with disabilities and accessibility concerns. 

She is the author of “Awesomely Emma,” wherin Emma, a wheelchair user, visits her local art museum on a school field trip and encounters numerous accessibility barriers. Her experiences allow her to embrace her inner-self and her confidence to advocate for herself and others with disabilities. 

Webb will begin the event by reading her book “Awesomely Emma” in front of the Toledo Museum of Art’s Apollo mural. The mural is significant because it was created by Henri Matisse, who is Emma’s favorite artist, who also happened to have a disability. 

After the reading in the front of the mural, participants will be invited to the Green Room in the museum for a light breakfast. Webb will then talk about her personal experiences, as well as participate in a book signing. 

This event is free. Preregistration is encouraged  and can be completed online on TMA’s website
