Art on the Mall a big hit on UT campus

Posted: Updated:

While the University of Toledo is waiting for its students to arrive in a few weeks, the mall on campus was put to good use Sunday afternoon.

"Art on the Mall" has been a tradition for more than 20 years.

There were more than 100 booths set up with artwork at the event.

Mediums included glass, jewelry, pottery and acrylic.

There was a best of show competition, the highest honor.

An award also went to the best artist with an affiliation to the university.

Art on the Mall is one of the favorite venues of one of the artists.

"I like the fact that it is one day. That's just a personal preference," said artist Steven Tozer Wipfli, of Ottawa Hills. "And, it's just a great crowd because it is almost like a neighborhood show. We see everyone here and it's great to chat with people as they walk around."

Artwork was for sale at each booth and they even took credit card payments this year.
