:30 Seconds Over Columbus

Unlikely bedfellows, sports and art, but a little less so with one of our current exhibitions, Hard Targets. To demonstrate, we enlisted the help of a few friends from across campus one frigid day earlier this winter, namely, Ohio State Buckeyes football coach Jim Tressel, two-time Heisman Trophy winner, Archie Griffin, and Ohio State Athletic Director, Gene Smith. Coach Tressel had a few other things on his plate so he couldn't make it here to the Wex that day, but, as you can see, Griffin and Smith both stopped by for the shoot. This spot is now running in Central Ohio on over 40 channels on the Time Warner Cable lineup, and as they say in the spot, anyone presenting a ticket stub from any OSU sporting event receives buy-one-get-one admission to the show. Go Bucks. Go see Hard Targets.
