Ohio Heritage Fellowship Nominations

The Ohio Arts Council makes an annual Ohio Heritage Fellowship to an individual or group whose work in the folk arts has had a significant impact on the people and communities of the state. This is your opportunity to recognize, on a statewide level, a person or group in your community who has made this significant impact. The folk and traditional arts grow out of particular cultures; are learned informally and are recognized as the artistic expressions of ethnic, linguistic, occupational or regional groups. For more information on the fellowships and past recipients, visit the Ohio Traditions website.

The award is given each year from one of three categories: Performing Arts, Material Culture and Community Leadership.
