Emerson Burkhart
He was one cool artist


More Burkhart Stuff
DORAL CHENOWETH, aka The Grumpy Gourmet, knew Burkhart
and wrote a play
about him. The script came from some six hours of tape recordings produced between 1956 and 1966. The Chenoweth tapes and script provide you with an artistic view of a great American painter.
Doral's website includes photos, the play, and more

COLUMBUS NEIGHBORHOODS - SHORT NORTH DOCUMENTARY

The story of one of the city’s most vibrant and exciting neighborhoods includes the tale of the arches, the rise—and abrupt fall—of the Columbus Union Station, an incredible reunion of Civil War soldiers, the circus magnate who mesmerized a town, and the emergence of local festivals and traditions that have become a part of the Short North’s character. It’s a story of how a grassroots movement transforms a run-down, forgotten neighborhood into Columbus’ center for arts and culture.

Bonus material include maps, a slideshow of remarkable buildings and a brief description of their history, a Flytown reunion feature, and a video that shows how you can contribute to the Columbus Neighborhoods website.
