“Holler” presents Krate Digga at Columbus Museum of Art

"Holler," Scott Woods' month-long series of arts events and performances highlighting black artists from the Columbus area, is underway. One of Woods' favorite artist-venue pairings hits this weekend when DJ Krate Digga will hold court at the Columbus Museum of Art. "It was important to me to put certain art in places where it could really shine," Woods said. "I got a DJ, who I commissioned to do an original musical piece, at the [Columbus Museum of Art], because that's where you should premiere original art."
