The AEO tour begins with an opening ceremony early in the year where awards are given for first, second and third place in each category, including Best in Show and People’s Choice. Following the opening ceremony, the exhibit goes on tour across Ohio through December.
“What I love about the [AEO] exhibit is the variety and diversity of both the artwork itself as well as the special artists who created it!”
