COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A contemporary art museum on Ohio State’s Columbus campus has re-opened to the public after being temporarily shuttered in the wake of a man’s fatal rampage - but its primary exhibit remains closed.

The Wexner Center for the Arts reopened Wednesday. Its galleries, cafe and gift shop all resumed regular business hours.

However, the museum said After Picasso: 80 Contemporary Artists will remain closed for the balance of its scheduled run.

The decision follows the rampage Sunday involving 63-year-old Dean Sturgis, a former security guard who resigned in 2009 to avoid being fired.

In 911 tape, a security supervisor said a man later identified as Sturgis was “marking up the art and shooting.” Sturgis later killed himself with a shot to the head. No one else was injured.
