We’re launching a new sub-series within Broad & High called ARTifacts. This series of occasional shorts will feature hidden treasures from the archives of the Ohio History Center. They’ll be peppered into the show every couple of weeks. The first features the artwork of architectural painter and OSU instructor Ralph Fanning (b. 1889) and why his paintings are important to Columbus.
Malcolm J picked up his pencil once more. He’s now largely known for his architectural drawings of the Short North, where he can often be seen sketching live on High Street during Gallery Hop. But he wants everyone to know he’s much more than a street artist.
The Glamazons are drag performers… but without the queen. The group stages out-of-this-world productions at Wall Street Nightclub downtown that feel less about imitating women and more about showcasing sci-fi fantasy creatures that are both fierce and fabulous. It’s art before gender with this Columbus band of alien drag rebels.
Neil Clark is a founding member of Grant Street Consultants and probably best known in Ohioâ€™s political circles as a veteran lobbyist for the movers and shakers in the Republican Party. He has played a key role in the GOP domination of the Ohio Statehouse since the early 1980s when he was a Senate staffer.
