Art Loop


This season we've got a stellar line up that includes new themes along with a reboot of some old favorites.

Next Art Loop: Thursday, June 18, 2020

What Is Art Loop

Music, Food, Art & Fun

The Loop is Toledo’s signature monthly arts experience. Explore the downtown creative community through self-guided tours of the art, artists, and spaces that inspire a vibrant Toledo.

The Loop is a program of The Arts Commission, presented in partnership with the artists and participating venues who make it possible.

Art Loop takes place each third Thursday of the month June-December, 5:30-9pm.

How To Loop

Let's Get Started

You are welcome to walk, cycle, drive, or dance your way through The Loop, but one of the most exciting ways is to hop aboard a bus, made possible through our partnership with TARTA.

There is too much to see and do during one Loop; visit us each month for new experiences and more fun!

EXACT CHANGE of $1.50 is needed per person to ride the bus. Already have a TARTA pass - just hop on and enjoy!


Find a bus stop. Stops/routes are listed on the map link above. Buses arrive every 15 to 20 minutes at each stop. Wristbands are $1.50 exact change, include unlimited rides all evening, and may be purchased in cash only on the bus.


Get off and explore your old favorites and some new spots to see what Toledo's creative community has to offer.


Jump back on the bus at any stop and find a new area to explore. Guests are encouraged to walk between bus stops and visit new venues along the way. There is too much to do and see in one Loop, be sure to come back each month and find more!
