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.
Columbus Will Tear Down 900 Vacant Houses
Columbus mayor Michael Coleman says the city plans to spend $11.5 million over the next few years to tear down 900 houses deemed dangerous or uninhabitable.
While the spending would be a record for Columbus, Mayor Michael Coleman says the city had to act because the houses are threatening the viability of neighborhoods.
The demolitions are part of a comprehensive city effort dealing with vacant houses…the city has more than 6,200 abandoned homes.
