I went for a comedy concert and was seated in the balcony. The venue was nice enough but I couldn't hear most of the performance. I complained to the usher and ticket office but got nowhere.

This is a hidden treasure. I am sure there are people who have lived in Columbus, Ohio who have never seen this gallery. I found it to be very nice, very quaint. I loved it.

The Inaugural Juried Exhibition November 5, 2015–January 9, 2016 Several pieces of interest and also an exhibit in the lobby, Inside Looking Out: Creative Works by Ohio Prison Inmates November 5–December 12. Worth a stop by! We spent an hour, and that worked well.
