Exhibit Columbus to kick off with designer/public conversations

Exhibit Columbus will soon be unveiling this year’s architecture and design installations complementing the city’s most famous landmarks. This is the second time for the installations in and around downtown Columbus, which are created every other year by designers and architects from around the world.

The opening weekend starts on Friday Aug. 23rd with public conversations talking to those creators about their work. Anne Surak, artistic director for Exhibit Columbus, explains.

Those will start at 4 p.m. Friday at North Christian Church and will pick up again on Saturday morning at First Christian Church.

Surak said the goal is to have the public engage with the designers and how they approached the creative process relating to Columbus’s world-famous architecture.

There will also be a ticketed party in Mill Race Park on the evening of Saturday, Aug. 24th to celebrate the opening of the installations. You can get more information and find links to tickets at exhibitcolumbus.org.
