The Short North Arts District is the Art + Soul of Columbus.
We are home to over 350 businesses who employ over 10,000 people and showcase the talents of thousands of performing and visual artists each year.
91% of businesses are locally owned or headquartered and 70% are hyper-small, employing just 20 people or less.
But 100% of them need your help and support to get through this challenging time.
With your help, we can get through this together. #BeTheArtAndSoul
