Murals

BGSU Mural Project, 2017

For years, Gordon Ricketts, director of the Arts Village, has run a summer art mural workshop. His classes create murals in the East Toledo Area. His course has resulted in over 20 murals being painted in the city.

Ricketts started the class after working with the Sofia Quintero Art and Cultural Center to design and paint a mural along a viaduct in the Old South End.
