Ohio: The Arts: Part of the Solution

To help constituents and advocates make the case about the importance of arts funding during the recession, the Ohio Arts Council has prepared a compendium of examples that showcase how arts projects make meaningful contributions to the economy, education and community life. “The Arts: Part of the Solution” profiles numerous organizations, artists and arts projects from across the state. Each profile includes a concise summary of the project and its impact on community vitality, a picture to capture readers’ attention, a state map pinpointing the project’s site, and a compelling quote from a participant or civic leader. The profiles are available on-line for the public, and will be used by the state arts agency to promote the arts, catalyze media coverage and support advocacy efforts. The Council’s portfolio of stories is growing each day, and when the Council knows which legislators will hear the 2010/2011 budget testimony, it will be able to select meaningful stories from those legislative districts to help make its case for support.
