Legacy Arts Ohio started as a grassroots effort to inspire local artists and mentor young entrepreneurs in Lima. The idea came from a collective of small business owners who wanted to showcase what was already happening here: the concerts, bands recording original music, gaming nights with artist workshops, and successful businesses.
Together we refurbished a property on Main Street into an interactive space for creative types – but it is about more than fostering an incubator alone; this movement helps preserve our heritage while inspiring creativity that stays true to its roots.
