Obama Arts Ohio blog

The following was received via Facebook:

I am coordinating a project called Obama Arts Ohio, a component of Arts and Creative Industries for Obama ( It is a viral campaign and a state-by-state, grassroots movement to encourage artists and creative people to use their talents loudly and clearly in these last days of the most important presidential race of our time.

Here’s how it works. If you want to be a part of Obama Arts Ohio, send an email to with your preferred email address. You will then receive up-to-the-minute information on artist created events for Obama happening all across Ohio.

Next, please forward this email to all artists and creative people you know! The bigger the list, the stronger the community will be.

If you are involved in any artistic event supporting Barack Obama, send the information to, and it will be forwarded to everyone on the list. Even if we can’t attend all the events, we can be inspired by the work of our fellow artists to not only get out the vote for Barack, but to create our own events in our communities.

I know some of you are not physically in Ohio at the moment, but that’s the beauty of the internet, isn’t it? Send this to all your friends who are.

Also, I realize this may reach someone who is planning on voting for McCain. If so, no offense meant, and if you have any questions or concerns about Obama as a candidate, please, please, please email me and I will be very happy to engage with you in a thoughtful conversation and exchange of ideas about the candidates and the issues.

So, paint a picture. Sing a song. Produce a play. Mold a sculpture. Make a film. Create a happening. Throw a party. Do it for Obama, let us know, and we will spread the word!
