I just got back from the Lincoln Theatre where PNC launched Arts Alive , a wonderful new funding initiative for Columbus arts groups. There was a fabulous turnout and yours truly (in my capacity as a member of the Columbus Cultural Leadership Consortium) had the honor of speaking on behalf of our cultural organizations. A little side note, never follow City Councilwoman Priscilla Tyson. What an incredible speaker!
Councilwoman Tyson is also a strong supporter of our cultural community. Recently the cultural organizations in Columbus were given an opportunity to speak in two council sessions about the public value of arts in Columbus. (You can catch it on the Government Access Channel)
It was a wonderful morning and a terrific reminder of what a fantastic space the Lincoln Theatre is. I’ve posted some photos below of Mike Gonsiorowski, Central Ohio Regional President of PNC, recording a few words about the new initiative, and a shot of the crowd disbursing.
