The Ohio Governor's Youth Art Exhibition, now in its forty-sixth year, is dedicated to the educational and artistic advancement of our talented young people in the state of Ohio.

The process of selecting artwork for the state exhibition begins with high school students entering art pieces for regional judging. From the regional entries, approximately 2,500 are selected to move on to the state judging, where professional artists and collegiate instructors review and select the top 300 pieces for the actual exhibition. Twenty-five exhibition pieces will receive the Governor's Award of Excellence, and over 30 universities and colleges of art will offer scholarships to seniors taking part in the show.

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. Click here for details on the exhibition.
