Columbus artist Jenny Fine says her camera has become a tool for facilitating intimacy between herself and her family, and nowhere is that more evident than in her “Flat Granny” series, soon to be on view at the Dublin Arts Council. The artist photographed her grandmother during the last ten years of her life.
Campaign visits cost Columbus thousands
When it comes to presidential campaigning few states are getting more attention than Ohio. The candidates have stopped in Ohio more than 40 times so far this year including 6 visits to Columbus.
But being the center of attention is getting expensive. Although the campaigns are required to pay most expenses, cities are on their own when it comes to security. So far this year, campaign-related police work has cost the city of Columbus $113,000.
But City and State Officials say traffic snarls and overtime costs can’t compete with the intangibles. For example, all the free P-R that comes from having the national spotlight focused on Columbus.
