Happy (Almost) May, everyone!
As we’re edging into full spring weather, we’re seeing more and more virtual arts events happening across the city. I searched the calendars on ColumbusMakesArt.com/Virtual, and here’s what I found:
- Gallery Hop goes virtual again this Saturday, May 2 starting at 4 p.m. Follow the @shortnorthartsdistrict Instagram feed to see exhibitions, sales, performances.
- Take a virtual tour of Lindsey Steelman’s exhibition Miscellaneous Reflections at ROY G BIV Gallery
- Evolution Theater Co. is streaming their show The Body Politic through Apr. 30
- CAPA wraps up its Apart Together concert series with performances from Matt Munhall (Apr. 29) and Angela Perley (Apr. 30)
- 934 Gallery hosts the opening of its newest exhibition, In Silence: Crystal Turisch on Saturday, May 2 at 1 p.m. Also, if you missed the opening of Emma Brown’s Red Thread at 934 Gallery, you can now “attend” it virtually
- Likewise, Scott Woods’ Social Distance tour of the Columbus Museum of Art, recorded before the stay-at-home order, is now online
- Actors’ Theatre of Columbus has converted its Shakespeare Underground series to streaming on Monday nights at 8 p.m. This coming Monday, May 4, they’re performing William Congreve’s farce Love For Love.
If you need an artistic destination for your walk, search the Columbus public art database first and find murals, sculptures and other installations worth visiting.
Don’t forget you can support local artists by donating to the Emergency Relief for Artists fund.
