What do you love about Columbus? Tell us about your favorite restaurant, bar, concert, gallery, local celebrity, etc. Each week, we'll pick one submission to feature in the issue and on social media!
The event title "Three Million Horsewomen of the Apocalypse" conjures up a daunting image of unimaginable amounts of famine, pestilence, war and death. Though the gathering at Wild Goose Creative on Thursday, Feb. 23 is not as foreboding as it suggests, it's arguably as powerful. It represents the approximately 3 million participants in the Women's March on Washington last month. About 12 Columbus-based marchers will speak at the upcoming event, a special edition in the "Four Horsewomen" series, which is normally limited to four storytellers taking on the four apocalyptic themes.


Current issue
Best of Columbus 2017

In September 2015, Patton Oswalt stepped onstage at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles, and, for the first time in a long time in his career. The intensity owed itself largely to the personal trauma Oswalt experienced earlier that year, when his wife, true-crime author Michelle McNamara, died unexpectedly in April, leaving Oswalt as the sole caretaker of the pair's now-7-year-old daughter.



"Windows on Death Row" was conceived by TV journalist Anne-Frederique Widmann and editorial cartoonist Patrick Chappatte in response to what they saw as shortcomings and troubling trends in capital punishment, from trials to sentencing to death row. The exhibition features a selection of editorial cartoons addressing the issue as well as art created by inmates. "We thought, 'Let's try to put together a unique exhibition sampling art from inside and outside the prison walls. Let's try to gather artworks from my fellow editorial cartoonists on one side and from death row inmates on the other side — opening a window on the unseen world of incarceration,'" Chappatte said.

South Carolina husband-and-wife duo Shovels & Rope, aka Michael Trent & Cary Ann Hearst, keep things interesting on their fifth album and New West Records debut, Little Seeds. It's the band's most personal batch of songs yet, written right after Hearst gave birth to the couple's first child. At the same time, Trent's parents were living with them while his father faced the early stages of Alzheimer's. That life-stage contrast makes for some tender ballads but also some stomp-box-fueled garage rockers.

X-Treme Pupaphobia, the exhibit title, comes from the artist's long-term love for the elusive death/rebirth of puppetry art.

Breathe & Bloom is Molyneux's first public visualization of how her brain worked through trauma toward recovery and healing. http://southeastinc.com

Fletcher has dedicated his recent research and teaching practices to how ancient literature, philosophy, and mythology can be reactivated through contemporary artistic practices. Fletcher asked artists how their experiences shape their artwork, and like the handbooks by ancient philosophers, how their artwork communicates life lessons. Come Along With Me brings together a selection of OAL artists at different phases of their careers and lives. http://www.oac.ohio.gov/

Beeler Gallery Visiting Artists & Scholars Series: Ryan Mrozowski
February 24, 6 p.m.
Canzani Center Screening Room
Ryan Mrozowski (b. in Pennsylvania, 1981) constructs paintings by means of duplicating, repeating, and inverting the most commonplace of imagery (oranges, polka dots, birds, flowers, grass) in endless variations. Mrozowski observes his subject matter with a playful and satirical distance, isolating the elements of landscape, still life, or narrative situations. In doing so, he negates both the original intent and artificial creation of desire at the core of most constructed picture planes we encounter on a daily basis. http://beelergallery.org

Columbus Symphony Orchestra: Chris Botti
February 25, 8 p.m.
Ohio Theatre
Audience favorite Chris Botti returns to perform with the CSO. Since the release of his 2004 critically acclaimed CD When I Fall in Love, Chris Botti has become the largest selling American jazz instrumental artist.

This panel is held in conjunction with the Thesis exhibition. http://uas.osu.edu

It's almost here... A Date 2 Remember... our big social fundraiser... this Saturday! It's a night of philanthropy, fun, food, fashion and more, with all proceeds to benefit charity.
Walk the red carpet, stop by the Hollywood photo area, bid on a silent auction package, play "spin the bottle" for charity, or grab a drink with friends. Then take your seats inside the ballroom as we begin our Hollywood-themed evening for charity, with emcee Karina Nova, and a cast of YP characters performing in our original show, "The Production."
If you're looking for an evening of glitz, glamour and giving, you definitely don't want to miss A Date 2 Remember on Saturday at Hollywood Casino! Nearly 500 tickets have already been sold and it promises to be a high-energy experience for everyone.
