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.
We’ll air the final round of the state competition which was held at the Lincoln Theatre in March. Six high-school students from across the state (whittled down from 34) will compete for the chance to represent Ohio at the national championship in Washington D.C. at the end of April. Also… April is National Poetry Month.
