The ARTnews Culture (and Food) Lover’s Guide to Columbus

A part of me believes all art people should live in a city like Columbus, Ohio. It is big enough to support a diverse array of practices, institutions, young talent, and incredible public art, yet small enough to make all these cool attributes feel accessible. It’s a place where everyone has tips on artists to meet and galleries to visit, and the longer you stay, the more you learn about its quirky, unruly side. I was expecting something of a town-and-gown division within the city—it’s the home of The Ohio State University—but instead I found a place where both sides thrive off the other. It’s a city where a group of young artists can pool their money and open a gallery with a distinct point of view and have some left over for a perfect cocktail; where an artist can create a giant digital head or a topiary garden based on a famous painting. And while I’m giving compliments, Columbus just looks beautiful with its old architecture and redbrick streets.
