The Arts in Ohio
In big cities and small towns, from Lake Erie to the Ohio River, we Ohioans have long been proud of our state’s cultural assets. World famous orchestras, renowned museums, bustling gallery hops, exciting dance and theater companies—Ohio truly is the heart of it all.
At the Ohio Arts Council, we are delighted to support some of the world’s finest arts and cultural institutions. With funds from the Ohio Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts, we provide financial assistance to entities and individuals engaged in arts programming, and remain focused on our mission—to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally and economically through the arts.
