Welcome to the Wagnalls Memorial Foundation!

We’re pleased to showcase some of the creative members of our community as part of our Art at the Wagnalls video series. The Wagnalls Memorial Foundation has been a valuable arts, educational and cultural destination in central Ohio since it opened in 1925, bringing the community together through an active engagement with the arts, the humanities and culture.

In these videos, we’ll share with you some of what makes The Wagnalls Memorial Foundation so special: the artistic talent and craftsman skills that are the hallmark of our community.

We hope you enjoyed these videos.
