Columbus Happenings

Here are a few of the things that people might have an interest in doing while here in town. After you are done reading it, please email your interest level to Chris.

Edgar Degas: The Last Landscapes  Art exhibit at the Columbus Museum of Art
Focusing on the magnificent landscapes that Degas painted at the seaside resort of Saint-Valéry-sur-Somme on the northern French coast, this exhibition explores the artist's particular connection with the resort town he had known since childhood and his late-in-life desire to create landscapes that would rival those of his Impressionist and Post-Impressionist colleagues. The exhibit consists of paintings, works on paper and sculpture. More than thirty-five are drawn from museums and private collections worldwide. When this international exhibition closes in January there will be no other opportunities to view it in the US.

Museum Hours are: Tuesday-Sunday : 10am-5:30pm; Thursday : 10am-8:30pm

Admission is $10 per adult, $5 per child

Swimming at the Worthington (or Dublin) Rec Center Pool

Whole Foods

Trader Joe's

"Shiny" exhibit at the Wexner Center for the Arts, free, through Dec. 31

This bright, playful exhibition examines our culture's love of luxury, spectacle, shiny things, and our own reflections. Many of the works in Shiny play with the commodity status of art, both embracing and slyly critiquing conspicuous display. You'll watch Andy Warhol's helium-filled Silver Clouds floating sensuously on air currents and see yourself and the Wexner Center's architecture reflected in the shimmering surfaces of Jeff Koons's 10-foot-tall Balloon Dog.
