The Ohio Artist Registry (OAR) is an exciting opportunity for artists to share their work, connect with the creative community, and establish an online presence—all on a free, virtual platform! The OAR encourages artists working in all art forms, throughout Ohio and beyond, to create a profile, which allows them to better promote themselves and their work. Being listed in the OAR provides artists with new opportunities to share their work with clients, galleries, patrons, and audiences. For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at email@example.com or 614-728-6140.

Todd Slaughter has exhibited internationally with sculptural installations featured broadly including the Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati, OH, PS 1 in New York, NY, and a major retrospective at the Chicago Cultural Center. Todd’s studio practice has concerned American isolationism and individualism, hate groups, survivalist culture, white supremacy, and “paternalist racism” as the writer Joseph Crespino describes AC Lee, Harper Lee’s father in his biography of AC.
His permanent public works can be found in the Midway Airport, Chicago, and Tarifa/Algeciras, Spain, and Ohio. He is the recipient of several Ohio Arts Council Individual Artists Fellowship awards and a NEA Individual Artist Fellowship. Reviews of his work have appeared in Sculpture Magazine and El Pais. In addition to his sculpture practice, he is an experienced industrial designer; he has designed play equipment for Playground Equipment Corp and the thesis for his advanced degree from Pratt Institute involved the psychology of play and the design of playgrounds and equipment.
Todd Slaughter is also a professor of sculpture at the Ohio State University.
