Parer Studio

The Momentum festival will take place September 13-15 in Toledo, Ohio’s riverfront Promenade Park. Featuring large-scale art installations including Fantastic Planet by Parer Studio and the Compound Camera by Pneuhaus as well as five specially commissioned interactive artworks from regional artists, the festival promises a wide variety of hands-on art experiences. The Momentum Exhibition will highlight Toledo’s rich history as the birthplace of the studio glass movement and current knowledge base in the glass industry.

Musical guests and Daptone recording artists Orquesta Akokán will bring their big band collective of the musicians hailing from Havana. The Toledo Symphony Orchestra will perform “Water Concerto” by composer Tan Dun (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). A wide range of regional and local musicians and performers will be active in the park throughout the festival.

The Toledo Mini Maker Faire will showcase more than 20 makers with demonstrations and hands-on activities. Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers of all ages and backgrounds.

The 2018 Momentum festival will be held September 13-15 in Promenade Park and the surrounding area including The Imagination Station. Learn more at momentumtoledo.org. Find Momentum on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
