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.
Special COTA Buses Mulled For Columbus Hot Spots
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – The Central Ohio Transit Authority is developing a plan for special buses to carry riders among the hottest spots in downtown Columbus.
COTA envisions stops that include the trendy Arena District, the historic and picturesque German Village and the artsy Short North neighborhood.
Specially branded buses would run between those areas on a faster schedule than other bus lines at reduced fares or for free.
Agency officials say they’re targeting May 2014 as a possible launch date.
The agency is trying to appeal to both those who live or work downtown and to visitors who want to visit local landmarks but don’t want to figure out more-complex routes.
Similar routes have been used in Cleveland, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., among others.
