COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The art of juvenile offenders in Ohio will be showcased in an exhibition at Franklin University.
The show features 34 pieces of artwork created by students in art classes at Ohio Department of Youth Services corrections facilities. They include watercolors, black-and-white drawings, and mixed media, among others.
The Oct. 21-25 display includes a silent auction, with proceeds going to the Brian Muha Foundation that helps inner city children. Department Director Harvey Reed says the silent auction provides a community service opportunity for the youths, while highlighting their artistic abilities.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. It will be at Frasch Hall at the college in Columbus.
