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.
A group known as Environment Ohio released a report Wednesday backing the Obama Administration’s proposed auto fuel efficiency standards. Those standards call for an average of 54.5 miles per gallon for vehicles by 2025. But better fuel economy means a decline in revenue for the state department of transportation.
A report by the state’s auditor has found that the Ohio Department of Transportation could save more than $6 million by selling underused heavy equipment and vehicles and closing two rest stops in eastern Ohio.
The new division will focus on finding new revenue streams for the financially-strapped agency.
A funding shortfall is forcing the department to delay several major projects, including an overhaul of the I-70/I-71 interchange.
The lack of funds could delays portions of the I-70/I-71 overhaul for as long as 16 years.
