Indiana-based artist Tasha Lewis transforms the Conservatory’s gallery with thousands of magnetic cyanotype butterflies printed on cotton fabric. Her blue butterflies hover in mid-air and seem to swarm the space, blurring the connection between the natural and artificial worlds.
Lackluster Results For Ohio’s Job Program
A report shows that Ohio’s new effort to find jobs for welfare recipients has fallen short.
The $66 million effort launched six months ago has so far come up with work for 257 Ohioans, and three-quarters are earning $10 or less. Of that number, just five were still employed after 90 days.
Half of the state’s 20 regional workforce boards trying to make placements have found no one a job according to the Jan. 24 report by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
The Ohio Works Incentive Program was intended to help people get from welfare to work, but state officials acknowledge that initial results are underwhelming.
