Congratulations to Loveland High School students Talia O’Neal, Sam Richardson and Joe Timmerman, whose artwork has been selected for the 2019 Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition! As one of the top 25 entries overall in the contest, Sam Richardson’s stop motion animation “Bombs Away” has been selected to receive the Governor’s Award of Excellence. Out of approximately 11,500 entries by students from throughout Ohio, state jurors selected 300 pieces of art for the actual exhibition, 25 of which will receive this exclusive award.
The Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition, now in its 49th year, is dedicated to the educational and artistic development of talented youth in Ohio. Selection of the artwork begins at the regional level. About 2,500 pieces of art advance to the state competition, where it is judged by professional artists and college-level instructors. High school seniors whose work is recognized are considered for scholarships by more than 30 universities and colleges of art. The 2019 exhibition will open in April at the James A. Rhodes State Office Tower in Columbus, and will close in the end of May.
