What is the You Are Here Toledo Project?

Many of us are quite familiar with the red circle and “You Are Here” dot affixed to many directories throughout America. These dots are wonderful assurances that we are, in fact, somewhere. Funded by the City of Toledo’s One Percent for Art Program, and proudly presented by AIGA Toledo + The Arts Commission, the You Are Here Toledo Project (YAH) is a series of large one-of-a-kind outdoor “dots” affixed to various public sidewalks throughout Toledo to promote positivity and enhance our sense of place. Using the circular shape of a dot (at three feet in diameter); Northwest Ohio artists, designers, and students were asked to make a powerful visual statement in response to their assigned dot’s location. One hundred (100) dots mark the city, each containing a QR (quick response) code that allows smartphone users to learn more about the artwork, its location and its artist. For non-smartphone users each dot  has the project’s URL for searching the work at their convenience. This project is unique to Toledo and will showcase the amazing artistic talent and places of this region.
