The fourth-annual Columbus Open Studio & Stage (COSS) event will take place Sept. 14-15. Presented by the Greater Columbus Arts Council, COSS invites the public to visit with 48 different Columbus artists at 18 locations, enjoy behind the scenes experiences at local performance spaces and organizations, and to explore seven community arts partners.
COSS is a self-guided tour where arts explorers simply buy a tour map and customize their experience during COSS weekend. #cosstour #artmakescbus
