Quantifying the intrinsic value of the arts


Greater Columbus Arts Council
Through vision and leadership, advocacy and collaboration, the Greater Columbus Arts Council supports art and advances the culture of the region. A catalyst for excellence and innovation, we fund exemplary artists and arts organizations and provide programs, events and services of public value that educate and engage all audiences in our community.

Ohio Arts Council
The Ohio Arts Council is committed to the economic, educational and cultural development of the state. The Council believes the arts should be shared by the people of Ohio. The arts arise from public, individual and organizational efforts. The OAC supports and encourages these efforts. 

Ohio Citizens for the Arts
Ohio Citizens for the Arts Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, was founded to leverage funds and support for the arts and arts education statewide. The Foundation is led by a Board of Directors and professional staff.

The Ohio Citizens for the Arts Foundation, in partnership with the Ohio Arts Council, present the annual Governor's Awards for the Arts in Ohio and Arts Day Luncheon. Since its beginning in 1971, the Governor's Awards for the Arts in Ohio has recognized individuals and organizations who have been vital to the growth and development of Ohio's cultural resources. The Governor's Awards for the Arts in Ohio and Arts Day Luncheon evolved from the Ohio Arts Council's Governor's Awards for the Arts ceremony and Ohio Arts Day, coordinated by Ohio Citizens for the Arts Foundation, a non-profit arts advocacy organization.

To date, the NEA has awarded more than $5 billion to strengthen the creative capacity of our communities by providing all Americans with diverse opportunities for arts participation. The NEA extends its work through partnerships with state arts agencies, local leaders, other federal agencies, and the philanthropic sector.
