TMA to host Friday-night event for high school students

Press Staff Writer

        The Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) will host a free (Y)our Night Friday for area high school students, Friday, Nov. 15 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
        The evening, which is planned by TMA Teen Leaders from the Toledo School for the Arts, is inspired by the current exhibition “Anila Quayyum Agha: Between Light & Shadow.” The night will include hands-on art making, snacks, music and free admission for attendees to the exhibition.
         “This is not your average Friday at the Toledo Museum of Art,” said Maria Iafelice, Youth and Family Programs Manager. “The Teen leaders have planned a fun, interactive evening and area high school students are encouraged to bring their friends and make new friends as well.”
        “Anila Quayyum Agha: Between Light and Shadow” has transformed Galleries 4, 5, and 9 into stunning illuminated spaces.
        Anila Agha is a Pakistani-American artist who creates the awe-inspiring spaces from intricate patterns of light and shadow, evoking the sacred, while also raising questions of exclusion and belonging. She won the two top prizes at ArtPrize, the international art competition held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 2014. Her entry, titled Intersections, is the first work to win both the ArtPrize Public Vote and Juried Grand Prizes.
        “Anila Quayyum Agha: Between Light and Shadow” is on view through Sunday, Feb. 9, 2020. Tickets for the exhibition are free for Museum members and $12 for nonmembers, with discounts for seniors, college students, military, and youths ages 5 to 17. Children 4 and younger receive free admission. Tickets are on sale now at
