The Short North Alliance, with 17 partner galleries and organizations, announces the launch of the Arts Passport. Visitors are encouraged to collect stamps and learn about the arts in the Short North Arts District.

Pick up an Arts Passport at any participating gallery or arts organization. Get your passport stamped at any location while you learn about the gallery’s unique offerings. From folk art, fine art, and artisan handicrafts, you can build your collection with works by thousands of emerging and established artists showcased in the neighborhood.

Visit the District’s galleries and get a Start with Art stamp on your passport while you learn about each gallery’s unique offerings. Receive a reward from the independent, nonprofit Gateway Film Center:

  1. Get your Arts Passport stamped ten times, with a minimum of two galleries from each area: North, Central, and South.
  2. Redeem your passport to receive one complimentary ticket to the Gateway Film Center at the Short North Alliance (M-F, 9:00am – 5:00pm) or the Gallery Hop Hub at Victorian Gate on the first Saturday of the month (4:00 – 10:00pm).
