This past weekend I had the opportunity to take a Saturday, 1-tank trip to Columbus. The skies were bright blue and while 71S was swarming with police cars we managed to make it there in just over two hours with no stops.
We arrived to a quiet Columbus starting our morning with breakfast at North Star Cafe on High Street. Not only was the breakfast yummy, the unlimited magazines and people watching was even better. After breakfast we headed to the new Rothko exhibit at the Columbus Museum of Art. It was awesome, a three room intensive on the life of the artist and how his works once more figurative morphed into intense color studies. Also along with the Rothko exhibit there is this fascinating exhibit of Czech puppets on display in the other galleries, almost as cool as Rothko, but also sorta creepy. You have to check it out!
WOW, where did all this snow come from? Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but from what I heard the roads were a real bummer for some of our commuters.
Anyhow, back to business…it’s and ART weekend in CLEVELAND and I couldn’t be more jazzed to get out and explore.
First up is tonight’s opening of the new Transformer Station located in Ohio City (next to the Cleveland Vibrator Company…tee hee.) The Transformer Station is a project presented by the Bidwell Foundation in association with the Cleveland Museum of Art bringing contemporary art from around the world to the west side of Cleveland.
While the holiday decorations may be coming down and being packed away for next year, I am sure a few lucky ladies out there are still rocking their new super shiny bling…happy engagement to all of you lovers who said “yes” over the holiday season, let the fun planning begin!
Don’t know where to start? Not to worry I have two free tickets to give away to this years second annual Boutique Bridal Bazaar, Sunday January 20th, 2013!
The girls over at Something White Bridal do such an amazing job organizing this event it truly is the coolest bridal show probably in the midwest!

For all the details of tonight’s big CIA Spring Show (including the Craft + Material Culture, Foundations, Integrated Media & Visual Arts + Technologies Spring Show!) visit their site for locations, times, details, etc.
It looks like a wonderful event at CIA! Kudos to all the participating artists.
I can’t say I know much about this event, but if my friend Brian of Grey Cardigan is participating then I think this Pop Up market presented by Survival Kit Gallery should be pretty cool.
The 4th Coast Pop Up Market is a collective of local designers and artists and features many limited editions and one of a kind pieces. The market/evening will also include vintage clothing, records and other unique items.
If you weren’t able to attend the flurry of holiday shows, then this January event is something you don’t want to miss. The event is Friday the 21st from 5-11pm and Saturday the 22nd from 12-6pm.
Survival Kit Gallery is in the 78th Street Studios at 1305 West 80th Street, Suite 3C
