What do I love about Columbus and Central Ohio? That it is NEVER boring around here!!! There is always something artsy, educational and fun happening on the weekends and during the week. This week the art starts tomorrow night with a couple of art shows/openings, goes through the weekend with fundraisers, art shows, art openings and continues on Monday night for Alternative Fashion Mob‘s first movie night at their new FABRIC Resource Center on the second floor of Columbus Idea Foundry. So, don’t complain that there is nothing to do around here…GET YOUR ART ON!!!
