A pilot effort launched last month by the Greater Columbus Arts Council puts entertainers such as Nahotnah (pictured) at events and in certain areas of town.
“We want to raise Columbus’ image as a vital, creative city,” said Jami Goldstein, spokeswoman for the arts council. “When people visit, they can see the artists we’re creating here.”
The buskers benefit, too: Compensation is $50 an hour.

“Everybody was informed that [Yugos] were the worst thing in the world,” collector Art Hughes said. “But that’s not actually true, at least not to weirdos like me.”
