If you were at the #ArtsImpactOhio18 conference last week, you heard a little about this #FeaturedFriday project, the Ohio Art Corridor, during the “Big Art, Small Cities” plenary. Ohio artist David Griesmyer and his sister-in-law Rebekah Griesmyer started this venture with hopes of revitalizing the economy of scenic Appalachia with art and culture. . Pictured here is “The School of Fish,” located in #McConnelsville, #Ohio. This piece was created for the Art Corridor, which spans 144 miles throughout Southeast Ohio. The corridor, which currently features eight sculptures and two murals, will eventually grow to 230 miles, making it one of the largest outdoor art galleries in the world. In addition to “The School of Fish,” the corridor showcases both new and existing public art pieces in #Zanesville, #Athens, #Circleville, and #Lancaster. To be included in the corridor, artwork must be free, open to the public, and taller than 12 feet. .

Last week, we shared some amazing #henna from #Ohio artist @l.hetheringtonstudio. Lynn's work decorated the pages of the #ArtsImpactOhio18 conference program and also served as a canvas for creative art making in between sessions! . To celebrate the conclusion of a fantastic conference, today's #FeaturedFriday is a before and after photo of a communal coloring page completed by our lovely Arts Impact Ohio Conference attendees! Thanks to all the #OhioArtists who stopped and added their own splash of color! 🎨 . #ArtsAnd #coloring #mandala #conference
