Inspired by Toledo native and jazz legend Art Tatum’s 110th birthday, The Arts Commission’s Thursday, November 21 Art Loop | Jazz Loop is honored to pay homage to Toledo’s legacy as a jazz community. As the birthplace of legends such as Tatum, widely regarded as the greatest piano player of all time, “Poet Laureate of Jazz” Jon Hendricks, and long-time home to the third-oldest jazz club in America, Rusty’s Jazz Cafe, along with staples such as the heralded Murphy’s Place, Toledo’s reputation and role in promoting jazz music to the world is undeniable. This evening, join us for an exploration of versatile takes on America’s music with 12 performances by local and regional luminaries. All venues at The Jazz Loop are free and all are welcome!

Join 20 North Gallery for a spectacular evening of great musical performances, light hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar by Venue – and a wonderful opportunity to view our current exhibit, Falling Into Place: Michelle Carlson & Bill Horvath. Take in the live musical performances, interactive ink on paper artworks by Horvath and mesmerizing mixed media prints by Carlson as you enjoy one of our exhibition-themed drink specialsthe 360 Swizzle and Bombay Sapphire!
