Curator Emily Lang will be featured will be featured in tomorrow night’s episode at 7:30 pm. The episode features our latest exhibition, Emerson Burkhart: Reflections of an Artist.

Emerson Burkhart (1905-1969) ruled the Columbus art scene during the 1950s and 1960s with his honest portraits and depictions of life in the city. While Burkhart was praised for his artistic skill, conflicts in his personal and professional life prevented him from receiving national attention.  Reflections of an Artist: Emerson Burkhart displays never seen artwork by Burkhart, including the original sketches for the controversial mural Music.
