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.
Report Praises Changes In Ohio’s Youth Prisons
A new report is praising Ohio’s approach to reducing its juvenile prison population.
The Department of Youth Services now houses fewer than 700 inmates, a third of what Ohio used to hold in juvenile detention centers.
The report from a department-appointed monitor says programs for placing young offenders in community centers have produced what it calls impressive results.
The report is part of a court-order review system stemming from a 2004 lawsuit that alleged a culture of violence at Ohio’s youth prisons.
