The Toledo Museum of Art is offering an area for children to have fun outside this summer with Play Space. “We wanted to activate outdoor areas with activities for families,” said Christina Larson, the Toledo Museum of Art’s Mellon Fellow and project manager for Play Space. “There are currently only about five playgrounds within a five-mile radius of the Museum, and none nearby. Play Space is our opportunity to provide a safe area for children to interact and play, and it provides us with a fun project to gauge if there is sufficient interest in a more permanent playground at the Museum.” The space will offer children the chance to build their own play spaces by using large, Lego-like blocks, brought to the museum by Imagination Playground, a company based in New York.
