BrickStreet Arts Association would like to invite you to a Community Conversation on Public Art – Sunday, November 8th @ 4PM at the Northwood-High Buildling (2231 North High Street, 43201. Public parking is available in the back of the bldg on the left side of the parking lot.
Please RSVP by October 30th.
The purpose of this event is two-fold.
- We would believe public art is built on conversation. Building on the energy inspired by the Public Art Summit held at the King Arts Complex a few years ago, we hope that by coming together and sharing ideas and dreams, we can help one another make Columbus a more beautiful and engaging place to live and work.
- Like many non-profit organizations in the city, BrickStreets is at a crossroads. After a decade of work on projects in Harrison West and The Short North, we are ready to expand our reach and are looking for new partners and means for making public art happen.
Please let us know if you can join us for this guided discussion and networking opportunity with a few light snacks. In addition, please feel free to share this invitation with others you know who might be interested.
BrickStreet Arts Association
The BrickStreet Arts Association was featured in the Short North Gazette. From the article,
You know all those public artworks that have popped up lately in the Short North, like the mural of George Bellows’ Cliff Dwellers at 641 N. High Street and the whimsical limestone sofa on High Street just south of 5th Avenue? They owe their existence to a group of art lovers and civic leaders determined to help make Columbus more beautiful, one artwork at a time.
Since 1998, the BrickStreet Arts Association has worked independently and with other local organizations to bring about four major public art installations in the Short North and surrounding neighborhoods.
The only arts organization in Columbus with the sole mission to facilitate the installation of public art in Columbus’ old neighborhoods, BrickStreet is now one of the motivating forces behind the controversial Goodale Park fountain project. And its history reflects as much concern for the Short North’s history and future as have the artworks it has helped bring into existence.
