Ohio Arts Council




The Ohio Arts Council (OAC) was created in 1965 to "foster and encourage the development of the arts and assist the preservation of Ohio's cultural heritage." This is accomplished in two primary methods; first, through the various grant funding programs that the OAC operates to provide support to artists and to make arts activities available to a broad segment of Ohio's public; and secondly, by providing services that help to enhance the growth of the arts. rnrnThe OAC is committed to the economic, educational and cultural development of the state. The council believes the arts should be shared by the people of Ohio. The arts arise from public, individual and organizational efforts. The OAC supports and encourages these efforts. rnrn
