The Libbey House Foundation has received a grant of $17,500 from funds made possible by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The funds will be used by the foundation to support the maintenance and upkeep of the Libbey House, the home of Edward Drummond Libbey, who brought the glass industry to Toledo in 1888. The Libbey House is the only National Historic Landmark in Toledo. The ARPA funds were awarded through a cooperative program of the Arts Commission of Toledo, the City of Toledo, and the Lucas County Commissioners, and administered by The Arts Commission. A new exhibit opened August 12, 2023 at the Toledo Museum of Art featuring ReGift, a sculptural installation by artist Beth Lipman. It is based on the Libbeys’ detailed bookplate, which features the reception hall in their Scottwood Avenue home. Artist Beth Lipman created the sculptural installation out of glass and wood, which honors Mrs. Libbey, as she was a visionary about the museum’s presence in the community. Be sure to see it in Gallery 18 on view Aug. 12, 2023 through Sept. 1, 2024.
