The Accessible Expressions Ohio visual art exhibit and tour began in 1996. This program provides professional development opportunities for artists to create, exhibit and sell their art. Additionally the exhibition raises awareness of all abilities by presenting art by people with disabilities in inclusive settings. From the submissions received, a select number of high quality pieces will be chosen to form the 2011 exhibition.
An opening ceremony was held in February 2011 as an opportunity to recognize participants and hold another adjudication for first, second, and third place in Youth, Emerging, and Professional Artist categories, as well as Best in Show and People's Choice. Following the opening ceremony the exhibition divided and toured to diverse sites around the state; sales of artwork are encouraged throughout the tour. The OSU Urban Arts Space is proud to be one stop on the statewide tour in 2011.
