Inspired Giving celebrates the artwork selected for the Toledo Museum of Art since 1986 by its collecting group, The Apollo Society. Now entering its 25th year, The Apollo Society has added to the Museum's collections an astonishing range of 48 objects, including delicate 4th-century B.C. Greek gold jewelry; Chuck Close's Alex (1987); six works by glass artist Dale Chihuly; Bishamonten, a nearly life-size wooden Japanese sculpture carved in the 13th or 14th century; an 11-foot-long drawing by contemporary Chinese artists Zeng Xiaojun, Qing Qi Gu Guai (Clear, Wondrous, Ancient, Strange); and 2010's acquisition, the dramatic vista Landscape Near Cava (about 1820) by French landscape painter Achille Etna Michallon.
