Private art collector to open exhibition space in Columbus, Ohio

Ohio, actually has a much larger number of major contemporary art collectors than the Pittsburgh area.

Ron Pizzuti, a Columbus area real estate developer with a considerable contemporary art collection will open an exhibition space in Columbus's Short North arts district.

Pizzuti Collection

The Pizzuti Collection is a non-profit organization, which will present exhibitions of contemporary art with a mission to foster cultural understanding and educational exchange.

In Fall 2012, the Pizzuti Collection will open in our permanent home in a newly renovated building in the Short North, Columbus’ Arts District, at 632 North Park Street. We will have a program of temporary exhibitions of contemporary art, selected from the private collection of Ron Pizzuti. There will also be a series of artist talks, guest lecturers and an art library/reference room

I'm a pretty big fan of small museums and exhibition spaces which often connect better to their neighborhoods as well as show off the personal tastes of collectors.

This one looks like a potential gem.
