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.
$10 Million Gift To Fund New OSU Arena
Ohio State University says it will use a $10 million gift to build a new 4,000-seat arena to replace the deteriorating St. John Arena.
University officials are calling the gift from Buckeye booster Sam Covelli “one of the most transformational gifts ever” to the school. Covelli is the country’s largest owner of Panera restaurants.
OSU athletic director Gene Smith said the new Covelli Arena will be home to seven varsity sports, including wrestling, volleyball and gymnastics. It also will serve as a training facility for men’s and women’s volleyball, an occasional venue for women’s basketball and site of local tournaments and camps.
OSU hopes to break ground in late 2014 or early 2015.
