In 2008, the Toledo Museum of Art and the Royal Academy of Arts in London each conceived of an exhibition to feature the works of Edouard Manet, the first and some would argue the greatest of the French impressionists. The two venues decided to combine their efforts, producing one of this year’s blockbuster art shows.


The exhibit, called Manet: Portraying Life, will focus on portraits and will include approximately 40 works of art from more than 25 museums and private collections worldwide, from Denmark, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Portugal, Spain, and the U.S. It will open at the Toledo Museum of Art on October 7, then move to London after the first of the year.


ArtSpace has organized two special events in connection with the Toledo exhibit:


On Wednesday, October 31, we will hold a Soup and Salad Lecture centered on the exhibit, with lecture by Mary Ann Sullivan, Professor Emerita, Bluffton University. Soup and salad at 6:00 PM, with the lecture to follow at about 6:45 PM. Seating is extremely limited and reservations should be made by October 24.


Then, on Saturday, November 3, ArtSpace will host a bus tour to Toledo for the exhibit. A Toledo Museum docent will guide the tour. After the museum tour, the group will have lunch at Biaggi’s in Levis Commons (at individual expense). Reservation deadline for the tour is October 2.


Reservations are being accepted for the Soup and Salad Lecture, the Bus Tour, or both in combination.


Please submit the reservation form below with payment to ArtSpace/Lima, 65-67 Town Square, Lima, OH 45801.  Or call ArtSpace at 419-222-1721.
