The tour is to take place at Progressive Headquarters (Campus I) located in Mayfield Village and will present viewers with a rare opportunity to see Progressive’s world-class, museum quality contemporary art collection.

Started in 1974 with an acquisition of 30 original pieces, the Progressive Art Collection now contains over 7,500 artworks displayed in Progressive offices countrywide and features over 2,000 contemporary artists from around the world.

The Collection, which according to its creators is intended to “provoke and foster passionate discussion,” both among visitors and employees alike, is also host to numerous large scale installations including work by Felice Varini, Vik Muniz, James Hyde, Sharon Louden and Stephen Dean.
