We’re collaborating with the local Athens business Passion Works Studio to create one-of-a-kind OHIO products. Fusing the talents of local artists with the efforts of the Alumni Association produces products that express your affinity for both Ohio University and the Athens community.

Green & White Passion Flower Project
We’ve combined the color palette of Ohio University with the unique design of the original Passion Flower to produce this beautiful piece of art. The Green & White Passion Flower is available in 11”, 14” and 19” sizes.
Only available on the online Bobcat Store!
Painted Passion Flowers are made from recycled aluminum printing plates from our local newspaper. Every flower is hand-painted by Passion Works Studio artists and is as unique as the people who make them! Flowers come ready to hang either indoors or out. If hanging outdoors, we suggest they be protected from direct sun and weather. The medium and large flowers also work well as table centerpieces.
Annual Rufus Ornament Project
Each year we’ll be partnering with the Passion Works Studio team to produce a Rufus-themed ornament. Ceramic ornaments measure approximately 2 1/2" round and are only available on the Bobcat Store.
