Passion Works Studio
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT DOING BUSINESS IN OHIO?
What we enjoy about doing business in Ohio is that our state is very supportive in its efforts to assist people with disabilities with creating economic and entrepreneurial opportunities. This creates local jobs, stimulates local economies and economically empowers those we serve.
DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS:
Passion Works Studio began in 1998 as an artistic workshop between artists with and without developmental disabilities. The Passion Flower was the inspiration of one of our artists and became an iconic image of Passion Works. Nearly 24,000 Passion Flowers have been sold. The Passion Flower is the official flower of Athens. Passion Works now creates an Ohio University Bobcat Flower and the official Ohio State Buckeye Flower, as well as many other painted flowers providing employment opportunities for adults with disabilities.
Passion Works is viewed as a leader in its field inspiring similar art programs to spring up throughout the state and even the country. As a leader in its community, Passion Works collaborates with Ohio University and area nonprofits benefiting both organizations and those they serve. Passion Works’ mission is to "Inspire and Liberate the Human Spirit through the Arts," a mission they accomplish every day.
