So Many Virtual Arts Events!

As Ohio is creeping toward reopening, it makes me happy to see so many virtual events arts experiences going on. While we’re still staying safe and quarantined, I searched ColumbusMakesArt.com/Virtual and came up with a huge list of concerts, play readings, author talks, streaming film and exhibitions.

  • This Wednesday, May 13, the Thurber House hosts a virtual night with humorist John Moe, creator of the podcast The Hilarious World of Depression, featuring comedian Jen Kirkman.
  • The Thurber House continues to run online writing classes, too! I’m interested in the class scheduled for next Monday, May 18; the topic is Turning Memories Into Memoir.
  • Also on Wednesday, May 13, Wexner Center curators Lucy Zimmerman and Jennifer Lange will lead a virtual conversation with video artist Stanya Kahn, whose new film No Go Backs is streaming through May 15.
  • If you missed CAPA’s ApART Together concert series, you can re-watch them online at any time!
  • Last weekend, Lindsay Gallery in Short North opened a virtual exhibition called Random Acts of Art
  • We love walking to Highline Coffee in Old Worthington (it reopened last week for carryout!), and fortunately their exhibitions are continuing in a virtual format. I’ve enjoyed this watercolor work from Staci Friedman .
  • Reese Brothers Productions has started a new interview series called Art Tells a Story, Let It Tell Yours. Every Tuesday and Thursday at 3:30 p.m., from now through the end of June, they’re highlighting artists from local arts organizations.
  • Every Saturday at 1 p.m., the Urban Arts Space hosts Crafternoons! Their engagement interns lead different crafting projects virtually.
  • This weekend 3060 Artworks reopens offering artwork for sale, with pieces starting around $7
  • Brandt-Roberts Galleries has a fascinating exhibition of contemporary and post-war works with artists like Christopher Burk, Jacci Delaney, Richard Lillash and Al Newbill. Look up the virtual exhibition through May 31.

Stay safe, everyone! Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Stay safely distanced.
