Just under one hour from Ann Arbor, south on US23, the Toledo Museum of Art is an accessible and rewarding destination for local art aficionados, and something different for those familiar with southeast Michigan’s art venues.

On July 21, TMA opened the mixed-media exhibition Sights and Sounds in the Museum’s recently renovated New Media Gallery, consisting of hundreds of works from a range of media, addressing humanity’s complex relationship with the natural world.

The Museum also continues to show Rebecca Louise Law’s mammoth site-specific work Community, made up of over 500,000 flowers threaded and hung from wires hung from a gallery ceiling, on view through January 13, 2019.

Flint’s story is essential to the film because it illustrates the power of greed and why corporate money has no place in government. Macroeconomics 101 tells us that corporations are beholden to one thing—their stockholders. Humans do not enter into this equation. How can you have a democracy for the people when corporate money runs the government? You can’t.
