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.
Columbus Gains Jobs, Unemployment Climbs
A new report on Central Ohio’s economy shows the region gained more than 9,000 jobs in early 2012.
The group, Columbus 2020, says despite the additional jobs the region’s unemployment rate increased from 6.8% to 7% percent as more discouraged workers give up their job search.
Healthcare and retail sectors in Central Ohio added the most jobs during January, February, and March. But, manufacturers shed more than 3,000 workers as companies turned to more automation on the factory floor.
The Central Ohio workforce stands at 917,000 in an area covered by Franklin and ten surrounding counties.
