I wish I could formulate a good enough sentence to tell you how fanfreakingtastic the art scene in Columbus is, but I can’t do it if you’ve never been to the Columbus Museum of Art. Or the Wexner Center. Or the Short North Arts district (Gallery Hop, I say!). Or the Columbus Arts Festival. Not to mention the Columbus College of Art and Design, which brings in the best young artists around.
More into theatre, are you? Great! Me too! With the Ohio Theatre and the Palace Theatre, we get tons of traveling shows and musicals. One of my personal favorites is Shadowbox Live, the largest residential theater company in the US, which will always put on one helluva show. They also contribute to the art education in Columbus, so I promise that this scene will be around forever.
