Many could say that, while the face of Columbus is changing, it is still a Plain Jane type of town, where grey flannel skies, and Midwestern sturdiness comes to mingle in as typical a way as possible. Many could say that the culture of Columbus is Ohio State Football, Blue Jackets hockey, and bar hopping in the Arena District. Many could even say that Columbus is just a boring town, with not much going for it.
Just don’t say it to Liz Lessner.
“I’m kind of looking around, and I’m seeing peers, and there has been a renaissance, from web stuff, to music, to arts. There’s just great, great things happening, and it’s really accessible. It’s greased by the city, and the city’s really helping us. We have great advocates, both on a civic level, and a small scale level. It’s just a breeding ground.” Lessner said.
