From the OAC Archives: 50 Years of Support for Arts & Culture in Ohio

As we continue to celebrate 50 years of public funding for arts and culture in Ohio, we invite you to share your Ohio arts and culture throwback photos (even if it happened yesterday). We hope these #tbt photos of Ohio festivals inspire you to dig out those old Polaroids of your favorite arts event or pastime. Perhaps they'll inspire you to engage in the arts this summer or even explore a new Ohio city or town.

To all of the artists, craftspeople, artisans, and administrators—thank you for making Ohio summers the "festival season." We can't wait to see what this year has to offer. Please send photos of yourself or others engaging in the arts in Ohio along with who/what/when/where/why info to and you could find yourself in the next newsletter or on OAC social media. If you're sharing on your own social media, help us gear up for the future and use #OACnext50 in related posts.
