Of the seven nominations in this category, Broad & High received three.

“Artist Profile: Keturah Ariel,” Broad & High

A graduate of the Columbus College of Art & Design, Keturah Ariel works in many mediums and makes a brisk business of printing her work on items from T-shirts and tote bags, to coffee mugs and greeting cards. Her work has frequently been featured in Essence magazine, and she tells us how she has turned her passion for art into profit.


“Art 360°: Contemporary Art Hatching Across Ohio,” Broad & High

These 48 decorated ostrich eggs are the culmination of a years-long project by Columbus lawyer and art collector Charles Bluestone. Dozens of artists across Ohio were provided an egg to use as a canvas, and the creativity they each brought to the form is striking.


“Dennison W. Griffith: Another World,” Broad & High

Denny Griffith retired from the Columbus College of Art & Design in 2014 after serving as president for 16 years. An exhibition at CCAD’s Canzani Center featured new works by Griffith, showcasing surreal landscapes and biomorphic forms reminiscent of living organisms.

This segment premiered in January 2016, just five days before Griffith’s death. It aired again during a special memorial episode the following month.

    Loved the show, I am wondering if there is public access to the photographs used in the show? I am looking for one of the photographs of factory workers with a man in the bottom right corner with a t shirt on that said “Columbus Citizen” — please let me know if I can get a copy of that photograph! Thank you!
