Quote of the Day

"Ohio is the apotheosis of Americanism. The middle west begins with Indiana, the east with Pennsylvania, the south with Kentucky, and, surrounded by these sits Ohio, one of the richest spots on earth. Its contribution to music, art, literature and the theatre is far greater than any two states in the nation."

Faith Lutheran Church, South Avenue

Very impressive. It may be simple, but it's one of the three or four best Protestant churches I've seen in Toledo.

Super Duck?

Have a look. He's more impressive than most of what passes for "superstars" these days.

New Hope United Methodist Church, Airport Highway

I really don't know what to make of this, but I like it. Never saw contrasting colors of brick used quite this way before.

Good windows.

Former "Church of Christ Scientist", Old West End

Interesting building. I'll post more on it some other time.
There's a good article at The Blade about the one percent for art program. I may not always agree with their choices, but few ( Except anyone brain dead enough to listen to WSPD ) would question the good done by the program.
