COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board (CSRAB) and the Capitol Square Foundation (CSF) unveiled the portraits of seven former speakers of the Ohio House of Representatives this morning in a ceremony held in the Rotunda of the Ohio Statehouse.

 

The event brought 50 years of legislative leadership together on Capitol Square and was standing room only. The program culminated with the unveiling of all seven portraits simultaneously. “The seven portraits broaden the scope and artistic diversity of the Ohio Statehouse’s art collection instantly. These works of art will inspire and educate future leaders of Ohio for generations to come,” said CSRAB Executive Director, Laura Battocletti. The portraits unveiled are as follows:
