Ohio Artist Opportunity

If you are an artist in Ohio, you may be interested in entering the "Our Ohio" contest, sponsored by the Mahoning County Farm Bureau.

You will need to use a full sized cowboy hat to create an artwork with the theme "A Tip of the Hat to Ohio Agriculture." All Ohio counties are participating. The hats will go on display at the Ohio State Fair and the Canfield Fair. Then, the hats will travel all over the state, on display at art galleries and conventions through the year. The hats will be shown online at, where people can visit and vote for their favorite hat from July 30 until November 30, 2008.

"Artists interested in the project must make a $15 deposit, which will be reimbursed
after the project is completed. The “Our Ohio” logo must be included in the
design of the hat, though it is up to the artist to decide how big or small to
make the logo.

The winning hat will be chosen by the Farm Bureau Art Committee
and its artist will receive $50 and free admission to the
Ohio State and Canfield fairs.

All entries must be completed and returned to the Mahoning
County Farm Bureau by June 23. For more information,
contact the bureau at (330) 533-5553."
