What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in random activities that are not frequently offered in other types of meetups. Some sample activities include getting bubble tea, photography, snowboarding, Pokemon Go, nature walks, biking, reading a book series, visiting art galleries, going to comedy clubs, etc. I'll organize events around a broad range of topics and narrow things down based on attendees interests. My goal is not to replace any other existing group but to fill time slots that don't receive as much attention on Meetup.

What: Art to explore at 2 places west of Columbus. (All Links to online info [L] will be at end of description, as well as additional photos). When: Saturday, March 30, 10:30 am, meet for carpooling. Where: Trip begins at meeting to carpool at the Meijer Store South East Corner of parking lot at 1661 Hilliard Rome Road [L1] at 10:30 am, right behind Panera. I suggest offering about $5 to the driver of the car you will be in. We carpool (leave at 10:40) to London, Ohio, to view the photography artwork of Jo Ann Salyers, (a meetup member) in a Free exhibit titled "On Deck and Beyond" at the London Visual Arts Guild Gallery, 5 East Main Street [L2], which opens at 11am. The framed artwork will be on sale, so bring funds if you have a need for some great art, see link for other details. This is the last weekend for this exhibit! We have lunch at Ronetti's Pizza in London [L3] before heading to the Springfield Museum of Art, 107 Cliff Park Road [L4] with an ETA of 1pm. Admission for adults $5. Enjoy the Museum galleries until 5:00 when the Museum closes, or earlier, if we all decide to call it a day! (I need to be back in Columbus by 6:30 at the latest) We return to Columbus while driving by (and stopping to take a quick peek of) the Frank Lloyd Wright Westcott House in Springfield [L5] (not enough time to tour it, will save that for another outing in the Spring/Summer). Dinner near the carpool site in Hilliard(TBD [L6]) is optional, as there are ample choices. (Must be back in Columbus by 6:30 for me) Cost: - Consider a fair cash amount to the carpool driver for gas, etc. -The art gallery in London is free, but donations are gladly accepted. -There is framed art for sale at the LVAG Gallery and Jo Ann, the photographer whose work is being exhibited, would love it if you bought some! -The Art Museum is $5 for adults and children under 17 are free, Students with ID and Seniors(65+) $3 -Souvenirs at the SMA gift shop always cost money.
