Toledo Museum of Art Exhibition Lauded
TOLEDO, OHIO.- The Ohio Museums Association (OMA) recently announced that the Toledo Museum of Artís 2004 exhibition, The Unseen Art of TMA: Whatís in the Vaults and Why?, will receive one of only two Institutional Excellence Awards given this year at the OMA Outstanding Achievement Awards.

A panel of six museum professionals judged this yearís entries based on the nominated projectsí descriptions, goals, unique aspects, and outcomes. The judges then evaluated how well each project helped accomplish the museumís mission, utilized the museumís collection, and went above and beyond the museumís everyday operations.

According to OMA Executive Director Terri Potenzini, the Institutional Excellence Award is most noteworthy because it is awarded by a panel of industry peers, including museum directors, marketing and public relations professionals, and educators. ďI always feel itís an accomplishment for any institution, because our judges donít give these awards easily. They know what it takes to put an exhibition together, so they can really appreciate when a museumís efforts go above and beyond,Ē she said. Ms. Potenzini added that The Unseen Art of TMA: Whatís in the Vaults and Why? was ďan innovative way to display and make use of the type of objects that most museums keep in storage.Ē

TMA Director Don Bacigalupi credits the collaboration of the Museum staff and the enthusiasm of Museum visitors for the exhibitionís success and recognition. ďWe wanted to engage people with the aspects of collecting that arenít normally discussed: conservation, changing tastes, and even questionable attributions. By showing our patrons a behind-the-scenes look at their Museum, we succeeded in strengthening our connection with the community through our collection.Ē Dr. Bacigalupi will accept the Museumís award at the OMAís awards ceremony in Columbus on Monday, April 18, 2005.

The OMA is a nonprofit organization that serves the museums of Ohio, including art museums, aquariums, zoos, botanical gardens, science and technology centers, and historic parks and sites.
