Ohio Arts Council Grant

Stephen Yusko was awarded an Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award for 2013.

The Ohio Arts Council was created in 1965 to foster and encourage the development of the arts and assist the preservation of Ohio’s cultural heritage. The Arts Council does that two ways:

  • ¬†Through OAC funding programs that provide support to artists and make arts activities available to a broad range of Ohioans.
  • ¬†By providing services that help enhance the growth of the arts.

The Ohio Arts Council operates 25 grant programs and five service programs. The Arts Council builds the state economically, educationally and culturally to preserve the past, enhance the present and enrich the future for all Ohioans. The Arts Council believes the people of Ohio should share the arts. The arts arise from public, individual and organizational efforts. The OAC supports and encourages those efforts.

What an incredible honor to have been chosen for this award. My deep appreciation goes out to the Ohio Arts Council for their recognition of my work.
