"It Takes Two"

The Ohio Governor's Youth Art Exhibition, now in its fifty-first year, is dedicated to the educational and artistic advancement of our talented young people in the state of Ohio. The exhibition is open to all of Ohio's 1,112 high schools, both public and private, chartered by the State of Ohio Department of Education. Our purpose is to provide all budding young artists of the state with opportunities to advance their talent, whether that be through scholarships or simply experiencing the process of entering their work in a competition. The exhibition is a valuable incentive for our young people; it encourages an appreciation for the arts throughout Ohio and reflects the fine quality of art instruction and talent which exist in our state.

Submissions for the 2021 exhibition were entered and juried online. There were 6,280 entries submitted by 2,441 students. 1,030 artworks (roughly 15% from each region) were selected by regional jurors to advance to the state judging. State jurors then selected the 342 pieces that make up the online state exhibition.
