American Frame to Host Pop-Up Showroom at TSA

All March long, American® Frame will host American Frame On Location, a pop-up showroom located at The Toledo School for the Arts, 333 14th Street, Toledo, in The Martin D. Porter Gallery. Showroom pop-up hours will be Monday – Wednesday and Friday 1 PM to 4 PM, and Thursday 1 PM to 7:30 PM. The pop-up runs from March 1st to 28th.

As part of the partnership, American Frame will also mentor student interns, teaching them the anatomy of a framing treatment, the basics of DIY custom framing, as well as why professional presentations are important.

Services available at the showroom pop-up will include DIY framing kits, frame design consultation and custom artwork framing. A fundraising event is also planned for Thursday, March 21st from 5-8 PM.

American Frame will donate a portion of all sales from the showroom pop-up to Toledo School for the Arts. The public is invited to shop at the pop-up to support the school, while getting artwork framed and ready to display.
