Spotlight: Featured Artists at the Governor's Residence

Spotlight: Featured Artists at the Ohio Governor's Residence is a program created by Ohio's First Lady Karen W. Kasich. The program celebrates the work of Ohio artists by showcasing their artwork to visitors of the Ohio Governor's Residence and Heritage Garden.

The program enhances the ongoing partnership between the Ohio Arts Council and the Ohio Governor's Residence and Heritage Garden, where the works are displayed. All Ohio artists are eligible to submit their work for consideration. Quarterly artists will be selected by the Office of the Ohio First Lady with assistance by the Ohio Arts Council.
