This past weekend, the state level of judging for The Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition, took place. The Exhibition, now in its forty-fifth year, is dedicated to the educational and artistic advancement of our talented young people in the state of Ohio. The exhibition is open to all of Ohio’s 1,112 high schools, both public and private, chartered by the State of Ohio Department of Education. The exhibition is a valuable incentive for our young people; it encourages an appreciation for the arts throughout Ohio and reflects the fine quality of art instruction and talent which exist in our state.
Congratulations to the Taylor Helms, whose self-portrait “Laced”, was selected to be one of the 300 works selected out of 12,000 regional entries, to be a part of the exhibition in Columbus. The exhibition opens at the James A. Rhodes State Office Tower, across from the State Capitol, in April, and closes at the end of May. At the exhibition opening, 25 students will receive the Governor’s Awards of Excellence and scholarship awards. Congratulations Taylor and good luck in Columbus!
