Started in 1996, Accessible Expressions Ohio is an adjudicated, statewide exhibition and tour of visual art for artists of all ages with disabilities. This professional development opportunity helps raise awareness about art and disability by presenting the art in inclusive settings.
The AEO tour begins with an opening ceremony early in the year where awards are given for first, second and third place in each category, including Best in Show and People’s Choice. Following the opening ceremony, the exhibit goes on tour across Ohio through December.
VSA Ohio is a statewide service organization dedicated to empowering individuals with disabilities, creatively and inclusively, through the arts. VSAO is an affiliate of the international network, VSA, and presents programming in education, professional development, access, and outreach.
