About the Walter E. 特画廊

The 1,300 square-foot Gallery is part of the Center for Fine and Performing Arts. It is committed to exhibiting diverse, vibrant visual arts created by faculty, students and community members, and to embedding arts programming within the curriculum. Exhibits at the Gallery — both in the main exhibit space and along the outside wall — have spanned a wide range of media and styles, from traditional art to interactive, multi-media installations.

The Gallery is named on behalf of the Walter E. 特, following a donation in 2003 to the Owens Community College Foundation from KeyBank’s 特 Memorial Fund. Established in 1926, the Walter E. 特 Memorial Fund was created by Mr. 特’s daughter, Alice Crosby 特, to honor her father who was a longtime Toledo businessman and philanthropist. Mr. 特 was an owner and officer of Clark and 特 Lumber Merchants, a successful lumber company in the 1800s.
