Roberta Gedert writes for The Blade that the Toledo Museum of Art is expanding its campus. The institution has acquired five parcels of land, three of which were sold to the museum by the Glenwood Gardens LLC for $150,000. The institution purchased the other two, formerly owned by the Glenwood Lutheran Church, for $100,000.
“This is not strategic per se, it was opportunistic,” Adam Levine, the museum’s associate director, said. “We don’t actually have a use, but they don’t make land anymore, so given the opportunity to control that, it was the right decision.”
According to Jean Emery, president of Glenwood Church Council, all five properties were community gardens maintained by the nonprofit program Toledo GROWs.
