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.

Morgan’s daughter and her classmates at Liberty Elementary School missed getting caught in the middle of gunfire by minutes. Teachers put the school on lockdown after a man and a teenager were shot at 3:35 p.m. — dismissal time — during a fight just outside the Columbus school at Whitlow Road and Paladim Place on the Far East Side.
