What’s Happening in the Arts This Week?

And we’re another week into July! As we continue through summer and begin anticipating what school will/won’t look like next month, we’re still finding plenty of arts-related adventures on ColumbusMakesArt.com:

  • The inaugural exhibition at the Arts Council’s new offices, New Beginnings: From There to Here is now open! It features stunning work from Creative Women of Color. You can see it Wednesdays and Thursdays from noon to 4 p.m. or by appointment.
  • Wednesday night, July 22, the Thurber House hosts its next virtual Summer Literary Picnic with author Jess Montgomery.
  • The John Glenn International Airport’s next Java & Jams concerts series features Copacetic live on Facebook on Wednesday, July 22 at 10 a.m.
  • On Thursday, July 23, The Floorwalkers play at Natalie’s in Grandview, while Omni-tet plays Natalie’s Worthington. Natalie’s is featuring a solid line-up of music
  • The Ohio Prison Art Connection’s next artist interview airs on Facebook Live on Friday, July 24 at 11 a.m. This week’s interview features David Brown of the Harmony Project.
  • Glass Axis will help you get some of your holiday shopping done early with their Christmas in July glass sale in their Franklinton studios. Running Friday and Saturday, July 24-25, the sale also includes sculpting classes for kids (when you pre-register)!
  • The Johnstone Fund’s next New Music Ohio virtual concert is on Sunday, July 26, featuring pianist Caroline Hong.

And this week is our last chance to catch a few exhibitions, streaming films and artist talks:

Stay safe, everyone. Look out for others, be kind, wear a mask.
