Weekend Warriors

Starting March with the Arts

This past weekend the New York Times wrote a belated obituary for Aminah Robinson as part of their Overlooked series, a collection of obits written about significant figures they didn’t cover at the time of the person’s death. I appreciate seeing more national attention for her work, and reading it had me itching to see her exhibition Raggin’ On, currently on view the Columbus Museum of Art.

I also searched the calendars on ColumbusMakesArt.com and found much more going on this week.

For Women’s History Month, Blockfort opened a new exhibition titled Lasting Legacies, featuring more than a dozen local artists honoring important historic women figures, from Ida B. Wells to Jerrie Mock to Michelle Obama. The exhibition is open by appointment only through Apr. 7.

This being the first weekend of the month, both Gallery Hop (in both virtual and in-person versions) and the Hilltop Art Hop take place this Saturday, March 6. The new month means new in-person exhibitions at Short North galleries, like Salon Show at Sharon Weiss, Wait Here at (Not) Sheep and Resisting the Hard Edge at Brandt-Roberts.

Some more concerts, dance pieces and new exhibitions:

And this week is the last call on a lot of events, including:

Nick is marketing, communications, & events administrator for the Arts Council. He’s also a food/travel writer penning works for Columbus Monthly, Ohio.org, Ohio Magazine, Experience Columbus and on his own site breakfastwithnick.com. He is happy to hear the cardinals singing outside!
