Franklin Park Mall Celebrates International Year of Glass in the Glass City!

The United Nations General Assembly formally approved a resolution declaring the year 2022 as the International Year of Glass. This designation couldn’t be more exciting for Toledo, Ohio…the Glass Capital of the World. Toledo is very proud of its history and connection with glass and continues to celebrate partnerships between applications of glass as an artistic medium and manufacturing processes. So Franklin Park Mall is hailing Toledo’s glass history, industry and artists with a Celebration of Glass in the Glass City! Join us!
