Exhibit Columbus kicks off this week; installations going up around town

You are going to see installations complementing Columbus architectural landmarks popping up this week. For the second time, Exhibit Columbus will be hosting the works by designers and architects from around the world.

Richard McCoy with Exhibit Columbus explains that there will be 18 installations with most in the downtown area, but also an installation at North Christian Church.

McCoy explains that public events surrounding the exhibition kick off Thursday with a Spanish language event at 5:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon on the library plaza.

On Friday, there will be public conversations talking to the creators about their work, starting at 4 p.m. at North Christian Church. Those conversations will continue Saturday morning at First Christian Church starting at 10 a.m.

If you can’t make it to the events with the creators, a video documentary about this year’s Miller Prize designers is available online, McCoy said.

There will also be a ticketed party in Mill Race Park on Saturday. McCoy said a few tickets are still available. You can get more information and find links to tickets at exhibitcolumbus.org.

The installations will be in place through Dec. 1st.
