Etch A Sketch art on display at Ohio Statehouse

COLUMBUS, Ohio The Ohio Statehouse this month is showcasing art made with a classic toy from an Ohio company.

Artist Tim George s canvas is the Etch A Sketch, made by Ohio Art Co. of Bryan. Throughout February, visitors to the Statehouse Crypt will find 56 of the toys featuring George s creations portraying the eight U.S. presidents from Ohio, as well as state symbols and images of the state Capitol.

George says he began making elaborate art by twisting Etch A Sketch knobs during a hospital stay for his daughter Ellie at Nationwide Children s Hospital in Columbus. The self-described Mr. Etch A Sketh and author of a book on Etch A Sketch art says his drawings entertained Ellie and other patients.
