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.
Ohio Could Spend $3.5 Million On Animal Facility
The state of Ohio wants to spend $3.5 million to build and operate a Department of Agriculture facility that would temporarily house exotic animals confiscated under a new law.
The state Controlling Board, which handles certain adjustments to the state budget, will have to approve the Department of Agriculture’s request for the money in a meeting Sept. 10.
The amount was reported Friday in a meeting agenda released by the Ohio Office of Budget and Management. The request includes $2.93 million for construction of the facility, which will be built on the agriculture department’s campus in a rural area east of Columbus.
The move comes as the state prepares to crack down on owners of exotic animals.
