It's a Small World after all at the Toledo Museum of Art

The Toledo Museum of Art Friday unveiled its latest exhibit called "Small Worlds"
It brings together intricate and thoughtful works of art on the smallest of scales.
The intriguing works in "Small Worlds" explore the realms of the home, the studio, the neighborhood, the city, and the natural world, said Amy Gilman, curator of contemporary art, associate director of the Museum and organizer the exhibition.
"These works encourage the viewer to consider space and perspective in different ways," said Gilman. "We may feel oversized when peering at Gregory Euclide's miniature ecosystems, yet small and disoriented when we're surrounded by Tabaimo's video installation depicting a Japanese 'home' where the walls become the ceiling and reality is turned upside down."
"Small Worlds" is free and is on view until March 25, 2012 in the Canaday Gallery.
