ODVS seeking entries for Ohio Veterans Art Exhibition

Ohio Department of Veterans Services, Press Release

The Ohio Department of Veterans Services, through its ongoing partnership with the Ohio Arts Council, is pleased to present the 2023 Ohio Veterans Art Exhibition, which will be on display in downtown Columbus later this year.

Ohio’s active duty and veteran artists are invited to showcase their artistic talents for this wide-ranging and public event, which will be viewable in the first-floor lobby of the Vern Riffe Center for Government and the Arts.

Exhibition date are Oct. 23 - Dec. 8.

While space is limited for this exhibition, we welcome all suitable mediums, including 3-dimensional pieces. We also welcome entries from veteran artists of varying backgrounds and levels of expertise. Keep in mind that your artwork does not necessarily need to depict aspects of military service.

An expert panel of jurors will review all submissions and give them careful consideration.

Selected works will be displayed in the lobby area outside the OAC Riffe Gallery, located in the Vern Riffe Center for Government and the Arts.

To be eligible, you must be:

• Living in Ohio; and

• A current military member or veteran.

For more submission guidelines, and to submit your artwork, visit, or contact Ali Yogmour at or (614) 752-8941.
