Toledo Arts Groups Painting The Town Red

Arts groups in Toledo, Ohio are selling plenty of tickets these days. But that isn’t protecting the bottom line. “Some of Toledo’s best-known regional arts and community assets – from black-tie traditions to avant-garde artists – are working in a new medium: red ink. At least four of the area’s major venues have posted a string of deficit years, according to records they’ve filed with the IRS: the Toledo Opera, the Arts Commission, COSI, and Citifest.”
