The Evil Ohio exhibition is a look at Ohio's dark side. A recent wave of boosterism seeks to point out the many positives of the state, and that's excellent, but as there can be no light without darkness, there can be no sweetness without the sinister. Ohio is one of the USA's richest states in folklore, haunted bridges and buildings, serial killers, and other dark arcana, and Evil Ohio aims to call attention to that.

The Evil Ohio exhibition intends to collect some of the finest of Ohio's artists, depicting views of what they find compellingly dark about their home state. It means to showcase the time, focus, dedication, insight and imagination put forth by the members of Ohio's creative communities.
