"Report on Arts & Culture in Central Ohio and Why it's Important"
Tom Katzenmeyer, President & CEO


As the leader of the Greater Columbus Arts Council, Tom is passionate about helping our incredibly talented artists and arts organizations grow and expand.

Cities are defined by their creative energy—a vibrant community is a vibrant arts community. Tom says, "One of the things I love most about my work is convening and connecting people—like helping Columbus Dance Theater export their amazing work "Claudel" to Paris."

GCAC are also significant grant makers—who supply operating support, community impact, travel and professional development grants as well as give out fellowship awards. 

When not talking about arts, or attending arts events, Tom is often working in other nonprofit organizations, including serving as Chair, Mid-Ohio Food Bank Board and on the board of the YMCA of Central Ohio. And in the summer, on those rare, warm and sunny days on Lake Erie, you’ll find him hanging out at Put-In-Bay on a boat.

HERE HE GOES AGAIN - MT EVEREST

Our own John O'Meara is back in Nepal on his quest to summit Mt. Everest.  He took a club flag with him so has an excused absence(s) for the next several months.  If you would like to follow John and his team's journey you can find it here; www.mountainguides.com 

If I am right, John and his team are rotating between Camp 2 and 3 as they continue to prepare for the final push.  Camp 3 sits at 24,000 feet about half way up this picture.
