The winner of MAN’s America’s Favorite Art Museum Tourney is the Toledo Museum of Art. Toledo defeated the Clark Art Institute. 75.7%-24.3%. Over 5,000 votes were cast in the final and I’d estimate that over 75,000 votes were cast over the course of the tournament.

So, how did Toledo win? I think the breakdown in this post holds true.
Congrats to the TMA and its fans. If you’re a coastal parochial and haven’t visited the TMA (or the other superb art museums and collections in America’s industrial heartland), consider this a nudge.
