Columbus Cultural Arts Center Announces November Events

COLUMBUS – The Columbus Cultural Arts Center (CAC) has announced its November calendar of events.


Out of Tunes

Nov. 19 - Dec. 31; Main Gallery

In this exhibition, artist Brian Riegel takes reclaimed musical instruments and morphs them into fantastical mixed media sculptures. Many of these instruments are Steampunk/Dieselpunk inspired, and they are bound to make you wonder what you might create from that old clarinet or trumpet that’s been hiding in the back of your closet.

Opening Night: Friday, Nov. 19

Instagram Live virtual walkthrough: TBA



Nov. 19 - Dec. 31; Loft Gallery

In this exhibition, artist Steven Riggs combines old world techniques with oils and graphite in order to create portraits, landscapes and mythological scenes. Each work is a combination of past experiences, with an intense study of literature and history.

Opening Night: Friday, Nov. 19

Instagram Live virtual walkthrough: TBA



Artist in Residence

Brianna RhodesSept. 14 - Jan. 4, 2022

Dancer, poet and educator Brianna Rhodes is our current Artist in Residence! Hailing from Dayton, Ohio, Rhodes freelances and teaches dance, including multiple online offerings during the pandemic. We are eager to see how Rhodes will craft her work and time throughout this residency. Follow our social media outlets for more updates along the way!

Conversations & Coffee (Virtual)

Thursdays, Noon-1 p.m.

This free program features a different artist every other week, sharing insights into their creative process. Information on how to join is available online.

  • Nov. 11: Loft Gallery artists Barbara Vogel and Marge Bender join us to chat all things Masks – an exhibition centered around the all too familiar surgical mask, and all the playful (and playfully disturbing) ways both artists explored them.
  • Nov. 18: Main Gallery artist Brian Riegel joins the conversation to tell us more about the mixed media installation Out of Tunes, which reclaims musical instruments in new and fascinating ways.
