A Native Toledoian born and raised around the Arts has Influenced Allie Ray’s passion in life which is to help the Toledo Arts Community thrive and grow with each year. Being an Alumni of Toledo School for the Arts, Allie knows the Toledo Arts scene like the back of her hand. Being a Multi Media Journalist for BCAN, gives her the chance to personally know artists, and gives her the opportunity to tell their unique stories. This platform gives Allie the chance to educate viewers of what art is, meaning art can go farther than the canvas, and the stage. This inspires her every day to help others understand the meaning of Art.
