Arts preview: 'Access Art'

Jim Fischer
Columbus Alive
"Blue Agate" by Miranda Kreuz.

As a clinic volunteer, Amanda Smith has seen abortion and reproductive rights from close-up. Her curated art show and auction, Access Art, supports Women Have Options, Ohio's statewide abortion fund, to help ensure what she considers the most important aspect of abortion care, increasingly so given the current political climate — access.

Smith said the art show also provides access for artists and art patrons, placing the work of emerging (and perhaps even some pre-emerging) artists alongside Columbus “staples.”
