Indiana-based artist Tasha Lewis transforms the Conservatory’s gallery with thousands of magnetic cyanotype butterflies printed on cotton fabric. Her blue butterflies hover in mid-air and seem to swarm the space, blurring the connection between the natural and artificial worlds.
As floodwall is dedicated, Franklinton recalls 1959
Monday afternoon, officials, dignitaries and neighbors gathered in Franklinton to dedicate the Franklinton Floodwall. The $134-million, 7-mile long wall aims to protect neighborhoods along the west bank of the Scioto River.
The last major flood to hit the area was in 1959. WOSU’s Mike Thompson spoke with some people who lived through the ’59 flood who now hope the high water will never return.
