The Ohio Arts Council (OAC) is an agency serving the U.S. state of Ohio.

Established in 1965, its mission is to "foster and encourage the development of the arts and assist the preservation of Ohio's cultural heritage." Each year it awards grants to arts organizations and individuals throughout the state. Its headquarters are in Columbus, Ohio.

Since 2003, it has awarded the Ohio Heritage Award each year, an award modeled on the National Endowment for the Arts's National Heritage Fellowship.
