The 2012 Ohio State Fair is a great place to see live music, livestock, and...live art!

With a special Antiques, Fashion, Youth Art, and Crafts showcase as well as a Fine Arts competition, this year's fair promises to showcase and highlight some of the best works of local Ohioans. Read on for more details about the Fair displays.

The vision of the Ohio State Fair's Fine Art Exhibition is "to empower and strengthen Ohio artists in an open welcoming environment, while encouraging a positive community connection" with a mission to "attract a variety of Ohio artists providing the opportunity to exhibit and receive awards and recognition, encourage innovation in the arts and expose the community to one of Ohio’s greatest assets, its artists." The exhibition will be taking place in the Cox Fine Arts Building and will be on display from 9:00am to 9:00 pm every day for the fair's duration. After hundreds of submissions, a jury selected works in a variety of mediums to be included in the exhibition. For more information on how to find the building, visit the exhibition's event page.
