Welcome to Fostoria, Ohio where we see art as an attraction! The Fostoria Area Visitors Bureau has been working to bring "new and different" to Fostoria with uniquely colorful and interactive artwork in our downtown corridor.

Enjoy a walk or drive through downtown Fostoria, Ohio from Perry Street to Main Street and beyond, where you will see outdoor sculptures, beautiful murals painted on the sides of buildings as well as a collection of community barn quilt squares welcoming you to town!

The Fostoria Area Visitors Bureau spearheaded funding for Fostoria to be a host community for a Midwest Sculpture Initiative display again this year. Along the tour, you will see eight sculptures that will be on display through May 2023 as part of this Initiative. In addition, there are several permanent sculptures installed along the way.

We love public art and hope you enjoy our Downtown Art Walk! #OhioFindItHere
