What Fine Arts in Columbus Are All About

By Jenny Greg

From Greek Revival state buildings, a set of American and European art at Wexner Center, the HQ of the Ohio Historical Society, and a Victorian museum Columbus humanities are a center for Ohio's capital. More recent examples of the arts might be found at the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, BalletMet Columbus, Broadway Across America, Actors' Theatre, and Columbus Museum of Art. Each of these justifies the visitor's return on time devoted. Please read carefully and discover what fine arts in Columbus are all about.

The Columbus Symphony Orchestra, established in 1951, presents 14 classical and nine pops programs a season. The summer portion is devoted to outdoor pops performances; the winter segment offers symphony in its home location at the Ohio Theatre, a ground-breaking national landmark renovated from a wonderful old 1928 movie palace.

BalletMet Columbus, innovative and very flexible, also lives at the Ohio Theatre where a 21 foot candelabrum and Spanish-Baroque design contribute to its opulence. One of the biggest dance firms in the United States, BalletMet Columbus tenders dance entertainment for all audiences together with providing accessible dance education and outreach programs for the community.

Another happy resident of the Ohio Theatre in Columbus is Broadway Across America, producer of live melodramatic events presented across Northern America. Just about all these venues are Broadway hits on tour bringing the Big Apple and London stage to over 40 towns across the US and Canada. "West Side Story" and "Memphis" are 2 of the spring 2012 offerings in Columbus.

Actors' Theatre presents the normal theater of Shakespeare and other playwrights to an out of doors audience from Memorial Day to Labor Day in German Village at Schiller Park. This acting troupe, with its 30 year history, started on a wooden stage progressed to an enduring performance site in 1995. Out of doors shows are free; nonetheless donations are inspired. The 31st season, starting in May of 2012, will include Hickman's "Robin Hood", "The Merchant of Venice" and Goldoni's "The Servant of 2 Masters".

And finally, The Columbus Museum of Art, which is located downtown, is on the National Register of Historic Places, and presents both early modern European and American art as well as modern art and photography. Apparently those rooms where pre-19th century paintings are hung use the salon style where art is hung above and next to each other. No stark white cubes in these studios; instead , walls of various and intense colors are used to explain the art. There's also an out of doors sculpture studio and a children's exhibit. Until May 2012 there is an exhibition titled "Monet to Matisse" which remembers the Columbus Bicentennial.
