Holiday-Themed or Not, Experience Local Arts This Weekend

It makes me very happy each week to search the calendars on ColumbusMakesArt.com and find a huge collection of performances, concerts and exhibitions. Even during a pandemic, Columbus artists stay busy!

If you’re in the mood for holiday-themed shows and sales, here’s your list for this week:

  • Starting Saturday, Dec. 12, Madlab Theatre begins streaming its holiday show A Very Covid Christmas, described as “a collection of short plays with comedy, drama and reindeer.”
  • The Short North Stage opens a new original virtual musical called Quarantine with the Clauses this Thursday, Dec. 10
  • High Road Gallery in Worthington has put its Holiday Show online
  • On Friday, Dec. 11 the Nest Theatre performs a virtual improv show called Christmas in December: A Hallmark Parody. Sounds like a fun send-up of Hallmark holiday movies!
  • Support local artists by shopping virtually or in-person during Festivus 2020 on Franklinton’s 400 Square. You can shop through 400 West Rich’s website (and select curb-side pick up) or visit the outdoor market, Dec. 11-13.
  • You can also visit ROY G BIV Gallery this Friday, Dec. 11 in-person or tune in virtually for the opening of their annual SmallWorks show. The theme this year is Peace Out 2020.
  • Tune in Saturday evening, Dec. 12, as the Wex streams Holiday Sauce… Pandemic!, a performance by Taylor Mac that blends music, film, burlesque and more.

And there’s plenty more without a holiday theme:

Nick is marketing, communications, & events administrator for the Arts Council. He also leads culinary tours and blogs about breakfast at breakfastwithnick.com. Did you see the latest episode of The Mandalorian?!
