Come check out the art at the Ohio Statehouse this month!

More than 30 works of art by students in grades K-12 from Ohio's public schools are on display in the Ohio Statehouse's Map Room now through May 19. And the exhibition coincides with the Governor's Awards for the Arts in Ohio and Arts Day on May 9.

The aim of the exhibition is to recognize the talents, creativity and innovation of students who receive high quality arts education instruction as part of their academic experience in school by professional arts educators. Participants in the exhibition were selected by arts educators in each of the Ohio Art Education Association's regions which span the state. Locally, students from Mark Twain Elementary and Cherrington Elementary in Westerville had artwork selected for display.
