COLUMBUS — WOSU Public Media received more Emmy awards for its Columbus Neighborhoods series and for ArtZine, a project that features local artists, events, and arts organizations.

The awards were given July 28 by the Ohio Valley Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

Brent Davis and George Levert were presented the “Writing: Program” Emmy for their work on the Columbus Neighborhoods documentary featuring the King-Lincoln neighborhood.

The Columbus Neighborhoods project was undertaken to mark the city’s bicentennial. The sixth hour-long program in the series about the Olde Towne East neighborhood airs this October.

Ashley Brook received an Emmy in the new “Interstitial” category for “Shifting Perspectives,” a short feature about a photography exhibit that focused on people with Down’s Syndrome. ArtZine features are aired on WOSU TV and may also be viewed on the web.

The production of ArtZine is made possible by The Greater Columbus Arts Council.
