Homewood’s leadership and staff were among 100+ guests, hosted by the Toledo School for the Arts (TSA), for the organization’s “First Friday” community engagement event on the morning of November 7.
The affair kicked off in the downtown school’s new gallery, featuring works by students in the visual arts programs. Guests were then guided into the auditorium to experience a variety of enthralling acts from student musicians and performing artists. The morning concluded with a detailed tour guided by Lindsay Williams, TSA Communications Manager & Assistant to the Director, and Graphic Arts Instructor, Joy Carson.
Homewood attendees included President Scott Dubuc and Vice President of Sales and Marketing Mark Dubuc, as well as Emily and Kyrsten Dubuc and Chelsea Arndt. After the tour, Scott Dubuc remarked: “Homewood is proud to support the Toledo School of the Arts in their mission to enhance the understanding of and experience in the arts among our community’s youth and to provide them with the guidance and opportunities to pursue that path moving forward.” Mark Dubuc added “I think we were amazed at the breadth of all that the TSA has to offer, and the talent level of the students was off the charts. [TSA Director] Marty Porter, the faculty and these young artists are to be commended.”
Homewood also suggested a competition among the graphic arts students to design the school’s 2014 winter holiday card and was pleased to hear that TSA accepted the recommendation, as well as the company’s offer to print the cards at no charge.
