Welcome, December. While some people may bemoan the coming of winter, what I see is the ending of 2020.
What I also see is our arts organizations continuing to adapt to the pandemic and find ways to make sure that our favorite holiday traditions are still available. Are virtual offerings the same? No, of course not. But I’ll take it. Even more, I’ll celebrate it because it shows our community’s resiliency. The show must go on and we can make do and still find joy. We are tough like that.
Annual Holiday faves gone virtual:
- Shadowbox Live’s Virtual Holiday Hoopla through Dec. 26
- A Christmas Carol presented as a radio play by The Columbus Civic Theater through Dec. 10
- CCAD Art Fair, Dec. 4-6
- Craftin Outlaws through Dec. 31
- BalletMet’s A Nutcracker Holiday, Dec. 5-27
More virtual offerings
- The Floorwalkers virtual concert presented by The Abbey Theater of Dublin
- Friends & Family workshop with Columbus-based artist Sue Cavanaugh. This is part of the Ohio Arts Council’s Riffe Gallery juried quilt exhibition, Found Again, which can also be viewed online.
You’ll find even more cultural events at Columbusmakesart.com.
