The You Are Here Toledo Project (YAH) (Ohio) is a series of large one-of-a-kind outdoor “dots” affixed to various public locations throughout Toledo to promote positivity and enhance a sense of place. Using the circular shape of a dot (at three feet in diameter); Northwest Ohio artists, designers, students and the general public were asked to make a powerful visual statement on the dots throughout the city in response to the “dot’s” location, which went on display in May 2012. One hundred (100) dots will mark the city, each containing a QR (quick response) code that will allow smartphone users to learn more about the artwork, its location and its artist. For non-smartphone users each dot will also have the project’s URL. This project is unique to Toledo, Ohio and will showcase the amazing artistic talent and places of this region.
The launch party is Tuesday, May 22, 2012, 5:30 – 7:30 pm, Valentine Theatre , 410 Adams Street, Toledo, OH 43604. Check this link after May 22 when all the art work will be posted: http://www.youareheretoledo.com/dots/
