The publication, which was funded by Roosevelt Row's ArtPlace America grant, will be unveiled in in a community celebration of the downtown arts district's creative milestones and promising future.
The launch party, which will run from 6 to 9 p.m., will offer live music by local performers, a presentation led by key collaborators of the visioning project, as well as food and drink provided by Lumberyard Brewing Co., Mamma Toledo's, Pizza People Pub, Short Leash Hot Dogs, and Welcome Diner.
