With Budget in Place, OAC’s FY 2018 Grant Funding Begins

With Budget in Place, OAC’s FY 2018 Grant Funding Begins

On July 19, the OAC board met to approve more than $12 million through 635 grants awarded to artists and arts organizations throughout Ohio to kick off the OAC’s FY 2018 funding. Our state funding comes in addition to the more than $1.2 million awarded to Ohio recipients last month by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). Both sources of financial support contribute to the innovative, engaging, and educational projects and initiatives that are being developed and shared in all of Ohio’s 88 counties.
Give Thanks, Immerse Yourself in the Arts

Give Thanks, Immerse Yourself in the Arts

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, this time of year conjures up childhood memories of family traditions. I remember seeing issues of the The Saturday Evening Post spread across my Grandma and Grandpa Holt’s house; the magazines were a constant presence, laying on the coffee table – dog-eared and well-worn. We often talked about Norman Rockwell’s paintings which adorned the covers. Of course, images of family and Thanksgiving were among some of our favorite themed paintings. And, today it’s a fitting time to contemplate Rockwell’s series on freedoms: Freedom to Worship, Freedom from Fear, Freedom of Speech, and Freedom from Want.
