The Bureau for Open Culture, the entity behind art shows at Columbus College of Art & Design, is starting the school year with an ambitious show, Descent to Revolution, that invites the people of Columbus to share their own skill sets. At Thursday's opening event - a potluck BBQ in a CCAD parking lot - ex-Yellow Swans half Gabriel Mindel Saloman will make a noise-scape from found, tweaked cassette tapes. On Sunday he'll discuss their use in the first of weekly seminars hosted by Portland, Oregon, art collective Red76. And over the course of the next month, Red76 members will turn the parking lot into the site of a schoolhouse made entirely of repurposed materials and knowledge. The public is encouraged to lend a hand.
