Which 2013 exhibition did Wex Director Sherri Geldin say “represented something like, three years of my life” to come to fruition? What were some of the arts activities this year that she says illustrate the city’s “can-do spirit”?

Download this episode of WOSU’s All Sides Weekend for those answers and more. Last week, Geldin, Columbus Foundation President Doug Kridler, and philanthropist Zoe Johnstone joined host Christopher Purdy in looking at the best arts offerings of 2013. The foursome also discussed notable partnerships (including Surge, a teen-centric collaborative among the Columbus Metropolitan Library, WOSU Public Media, the Columbus Museum of Art, the Wex, and COSI), the importance of the arts to the city’s economic and cultural vitality, and what’s to come in 2014.
