The Makers Marketplace
The Short North Arts District Makers Marketplace
In June 2021, the most significant public art installation to date in Columbus’ history was installed in the Short North Arts District. The Makers Monument, created by artist Mark Reigelman, is a 20-foot tall crystalline sculpture that’s perforated with the shapes of items that have been made in Columbus throughout our city’s history. Reigelman describes the sculpture as:
“A celebration of the great makers in our City, The Makers Monument showcases how Columbus is a city of great people making great things.”
