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 Zoo Welcomes Four Amur Tiger Cubs
The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium says four rare Amur tiger cubs have been born at the zoo, the second-such litter in a year.
The zoo says the cubs are being cared for by their mother and the family is being monitored by an animal care team using a camera in the tigers’ den.
The cubs are the second for the mother, 6-year-old Mara, and a 10-year-old male, Foli.
Two cubs born in June had to be hand-raised by staff because of concerns about the first-time mother’s care and disruptions to the monitoring camera because of a power outage.
The Amur tiger, historically known as the Siberian tiger, is the largest of the big cats, with fewer than 500 believed to live in the wild in Russia.
