From Ohio History Central

Many Ohioans have excelled in the arts and in the entertainment industry. Some of Ohio's first white residents were skilled craftspeople, whose work remains avidly sought by collectors today. As Ohio matured as a state, numerous art galleries, schools, conservatories, and other venues opened in Ohio's cities, helping to nurture the state's artists and entertainers. During the nineteenth century, some of the state's artists, composers, and musicians gained world recognition for their achievements. Ohioans continued to excel during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries in both traditional and new forms of arts and entertainment. Thousands of Ohioans have performed in the radio, television, and movie industries, bringing further acclaim to the state.
