It will open for viewing at the James A. Rhodes State Office Tower in Columbus, Ohio on Monday, April 22, at 9:00 am. The Exhibition will remain on display until May 16, 2019, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, weekdays only. The public is cordially invited to attend and join these outstanding and talented students from Ohio’s high schools, to salute their creative expressions in the visual arts. The exhibition is a cooperative effort between the Governor of Ohio, the Ohio Department of Education, colleges, universities, and corporate sponsors.

A total of over 11,000 art entries were submitted from Ohio high schools. Thad Ricker, Executive Director and coordinator of the exhibition and Hilliard Art teacher states, “It is with great pride that we exhibit these students’ artworks at The James A. Rhodes State Office Tower in Columbus. The exhibition is a testament to the high quality of visual arts education that exists in our state. It is vital that the community understands the value and importance of arts education, and the impact that it has on our young people. We hope that this exhibition fosters that understanding, through both its visual and textual displays. We are fortunate that Ohio is a state in which the arts and arts education are supported by community and educational leaders, legislators, colleges and universities, civic organizations, and businesses. Without the support and encouragement from these groups, the achievements of these young artists might go unrecognized.”
