Weekend Warriors: drive-in concerts and 30 days of poetry

In the age of Cornavirus does a “holiday” weekend mean anything? Hell, does “weekend” have meaning anymore?

Perhaps not. With the days of the week blurring together for many, events like Rhapsody & Refrain 2: 30 Columbus Poets, produced by Streetlight Guild, are a gift. There’s a poet featured every day in September. The only thing you need to remember is to tune to watch via Facebook live at 8 p.m. (5 p.m. on Sundays). Technically this event is free, but if you can donate, please do. This will feel like therapy, pay accordingly.

The Wex continues to offer spectacular virtual offerings, including Sunless Shadows streaming online for $12 through Sept. 17. This film, by Mehrdad Oskouei, goes inside an Iranian juvenile prison to share the stories of young women who are serving sentences for murdering an abusive male family member.

One thing that means more to me in these strange times is getting outside. I am so excited for more comfortable temps and am especially grateful when I can enjoy art outside.

ProMusica’s SummerFest brings us “drive-in” concerts with Vadim Gluzeman and David Danzmayer this Friday, Sept. 4 and Saturday, Sept. 5 at Headley Park, and Sunday, Sept. 6 at Dublin Coffman Park Amphitheater. Also, on Saturday, ProMusica is doing a musical storytime event at the main library. The storytime event is free but you must register ahead to reserve your space.

934 Gallery is giving you a choice with their upcoming show opening on Friday, Sept. 4. If you want to see Body Forms by Daniel Rona, in person, you can register for a 20 minute viewing on Friday. Each 20 minute shift will max out at 10 people (masks required, of course). AND they are offering a virtual option. 943 Gallery also has a great outdoor space with murals and plenty of room for social distancing while you wait for your turn to view the gallery.

It will be a beautiful weekend for Gallery Hop and the Hilltop Art Hop. Mask up and head out see and hear art, then grab some delicious take out from a local eatery for a picnic with your quarenteam.

There are more events to find at columbusmakesart.com. Please take care of yourselves, mentally and physically.
