The Short North Alliance and 11 partner galleries and art institutions with the support of the City of Columbus' Create Columbus Commission present the second installation of the highly popular Short North Temporary Mural Series, titled Viewpoints: Murals by Young Professional Working Artists.
All participating artists are either young professional artists under the age of 40 or are young at heart emerging artists who regularly support and mentor artists under 40. The series as a whole showcases works that reflect the individual perspectives or viewpoints of these artists.
The murals are installed on the exterior brick facades of 11 buildings along High Street in the Short North Arts District. They are produced in partnership with Orange Barrel Media and consist of high resolution images of art works that are printed on vinyl and heat-adhered to buildings. The process results in a work of art that looks painted on the building.
2014 Viewpoints Programming
In support of Viewpoints, the Short North Alliance will host Street Talks, mural tours in partnership with the Columbus Museum of Art, which will give insight into the artists' inspiration for their work, and will give a history of the mural project. Details regarding dates and times to follow.
Artist Talks sponsored by CYP Club
During Gallery Hop throughout the next year, each sponsoring gallery will host a Viewpoints Artist Talk from 4 to 6pm in partnership with Columbus Young Professionals (CYP) Club. These talks are open to the public, and will feature topics geared toward young Columbus professionals.
Details regarding these special Viewpoints events will be announced in the coming weeks. Please check back for more details!
