Friends told us about a textile exhibition at the Ohio State University art museum in Columbus, OH and one of them was going to be back there last week, so we went down to take a look and hang out for a night; staying in a fabulous campus hotel and eating in a great Japanese restaurant.
We were able to take some walks, mostly along the nearby Olentangy River. Not the Huron, but still with intersections, so good practice for me, and for Jill walking; she still finds it a struggle to walk on a hard surface like this, but hopefully it is getting easier. Before we left, we went to the art museum; there was no permanent collection on display, just 2 special exhibitions/installations.
One was a number of textile artists (mostly) from the sixties/seventies (onwards), some of whom had taught Jill and some she knew from other places.
The other was a video/music installation. Nine performers sitting in separate video displays/windows/frames, and when one performed, the others would turn and watch even though they weren’t in the same physical space or time, so they were always “live” but only performed when it was their turn. The best was two Jamaican women in Moroccan clothing doing a rap duet. Pretty fabulous. A great little trip, even though the drive can get pretty long.
