Summit DD Artists Selected for Statewide Art Tour

At Summit DD, we believe in celebrating greatness. Today, we’d like to honor the achievements of three exceptional artists from our Dream Out Loud Studio. Carl, Greg and Kalen will be representing Summit County in the 19th annual Accessible Expressions Ohio Exhibit and Tour, hosted by VSA Ohio.

This statewide tour began in 1996 to raise awareness about the arts and abilities of every citizen. VSA Ohio created the event to help inspired artists connect with their passion and provide inclusive opportunities that celebrate life through the arts.

Carl, Greg and Kalen’s work was judged by professional artists and educational leaders before being selected for the exhibit. “I’m very excited to be part of the tour. It makes me proud,” stated Greg.

To kick off the nine month tour, an opening ceremony will be held on Saturday, March 8, 2014, noon, at the Westerville Community Center (350 N. Cleveland Avenue, Westerville, OH 43082). The tour will then travel throughout the state. Check out the tour sites below and be sure to swing by to show your support. All of the artwork is for sale and the proceeds will go directly to the artist.
