The Arts at Ohio State

One of the greatest pleasures of my first year at Ohio State has been learning about the university’s astonishing array of the arts. I got to pop into open-studio night at Hopkins Hall; saw the student art exhibit at the Urban Arts Space; and visited the STEAM Factory, where faculty director Maurice Stevens and program director Charlene Brenner were kind enough to give me a tour of artists’ studios that share the Factory’s space in Franklinton. It has been wonderful to visit the Wexner Center for the Arts throughout the year. There is always something going on; I enjoy seeing the same exhibit again and again—and I learn something new each time.
