Bold block letters are painted on plywood boards covering the front doors of the Ohio Theatre: "Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise."

Libraries have always been hubs for fostering literacy with written texts. This summer, the Columbus Main Library Carnegie Gallery’s exhibition of visual works by central Ohio art educators will highlight the educational and cultural importance of the link between visual and text literacies.

It’s one of those buildings whose walls you wish could talk – an old house with wide windows looking out over a brick facade sturdy as the hills and a new unpainted plywood railing around the porch and leading up a few concrete steps to the front door. The unpainted wood tips you off that something is happening here.

Somewhere in Montana along U.S. Route 191, near Yellowstone National Park, a small white cross marks the site of a deadly car accident. This cross and others like it have haunted Columbus physician and artist Robert Falcone for nearly two decades, raising  questions about the fragility of life and the possibility of an afterlife. Now, Falcone, Columbus composer Richard Smoot and the Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus wrestle with these questions together in an installation of original art and music currently on display at the Columbus College of Art and Design's Beeler Gallery.
