MINT’s ‘Will Play for Space” at Skylab Gallery
Members of MINT Collective installed the first iteration of their “Will Play for Space” project in New York as part of the Spring/Break Art Show. It was the first formal work by the collective since it moved out of its former space at 42 W. Jenkins St. on Columbus’ South Side. MINT will follow up with the next in this ongoing project Saturday at Skylab Gallery Downtown. “Will Play for Space” will change based on where it’s presented, not only given the different physical configurations of host spaces, but also as a commentary and conversation on the notion of space as it relates to DIY arts programming.Catch Watershed at Comfest Zoo Trippin’ plays Park Street Saloon The Cordial Sins and more at Comfest Bruce Robinson ‘Configurations’ exhibition closes at Cultural Arts Center Kuya Ian’s Bistro grand opening Devil Doves local release show at Woodlands Tavern Kasey Chambers at Rumba Cafe The Spikedrivers play Park Street Patio Columbus Symphony Orchestra ‘Beethoven V.

Cherry Chrome and more on the last day of ComFest
In an interview earlier this year, Cherry Chrome singer/guitarist Xenia Bleveans-Holm noted her general distaste for bars. “The mystique of bars has been so ruined for me. ... They’re kind of dirty,” the then-17-year-old said. It’s also tough for the indie-rock act’s friends and fans, many of whom are under 21, to attend bar shows. So ComFest’s all-ages atmosphere should be a welcome reprieve for the quartet.‘Red Horizon’ exhibition continues at Columbus Museum of Art Creative Women of Color ‘A walk in the Park’ reception at Inniswood Metro Gardens CATCO ‘Hello Brother’ free reading at Studio Three Theatre Sexual Jeremy at Double Happiness The Greeting Committee at the Basement
