Arts and Culture


The arts thrive in the local region. The Lima Symphony Orchestra has been around since the 1950s and every year provides a top-notch season of music. In summer 2015, Ohio Northern hosted the symphony’s Fourth of July concert on campus grounds.

The Veterans Memorial Civic and Convention Center in Lima and the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts in Findlay feature a variety of national and international performance groups throughout the year. They both offer reduced ticket prices for students for many shows.

ArtSpace/Lima supports the visual arts with gallery shows and special events throughout the year. And the Encore Theatre in Lima and Fort Findlay Playhouse put on outstanding plays with local talent several times a year.
