Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association’s solution to save women’s lives. Too many women die each year because they are unaware that heart disease is their No. 1 killer. One in three women suffers in silence, and almost one woman dies every minute of this largely preventable disease.

This year, Go Red is asking women to bring a voice to this silent killer – speak up to save lives.

“Thanks to the participation of millions of people across the country, the color red and the red dress have become linked with creating awareness of heart disease in women,” said Jacqueline Isherwood, executive director of the American Heart Association, Toledo, “Go Red For Women is channeling its energies and resources to challenge real women nationwide to discover their personal heart health risk by taking the online Go Red Heart CheckUp. Go Red provides tools and information women need to protect themselves and their loved ones.”

The Toledo Museum of Art has revamped its public tours, creating four new

tour

series of guided tours. Designed to give visitors an insider’s view of the Museum’s internationally known collections, each tour is led by a museum docent.

The new free tours, which started Jan. 3, include:
• Inside Stories - Each Friday at 6 and 6:30 p.m., Inside Story tours feature one recent Museum acquisition and the  story behind its origin, how it was acquired, how it fits into the collection, its conservation and more. Meet in Libbey Court.
• ArtSpeaks Series - On selected Saturdays at 2 and 3 p.m., ArtSpeaks is a weekly series of three or more related tours. Topics this winter include Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, the art of Egypt, Rome and other ancient empires, and works that explore the seven deadly sins. Meet in Libbey Court.
• Storytime Tours - Every Sunday at 2 p.m., Storytime Tours for children and their adult partners spotlight works of art related to the Family Center’s art project that week. After the tour, participants head back at the center to create their own works of art. Meet at the Family Center or near the Matisse mural at the base of the main staircase on the main Museum’s lower level.
• Tour & Tea - At 2 p.m. on the second Sunday of each month, participants in this tour series will visit the Museum galleries or the Glass Pavilion to learn about a featured artwork. Continue the conversation with fellow tour participants over a cup of tea or coffee in the Red Room. Tours begin in Libbey Court.
