Toledo is full of vibrant, inspiring individuals making a difference through their work and pastimes. From artists and musicians to activists and entrepreneurs, our Creative Natives section highlights those who add a most important element to a cultured community. We hope these profiles encourage participation, inspiration and collaboration within and around Toledo.
