Wexner Center for the Arts, located on campus at Ohio State, is a multidisciplinary research laboratory for the arts with programming featuring performing arts, exhibitions, and media arts.
The Wex galleries and store are open Wednesday–Sunday, 11 AM–4 PM (open until 7 PM on Thursday). Admission to the galleries are timed and require a ticket, unless space is available to purchase at the door. Tickets are available online or by calling the ticket desk at (614) 292-3535.

The Wex is a great place to get lost inside for a few hours by yourself, with friends, or with the family. In addition to exhibitions, once they can open fully, they’ll offer tons of events, including talks, films, music and more at the center during the month.
