Columbus, Indiana is home to world-class architecture, and it seems everywhere you look there is a public art installation. So, it should come as no surprise that the beautiful, small city hosts an annual celebration of architecture, art and design, called Exhibit Columbus.
Exhibit Columbus is an annual exploration of architecture, art, design, and community in Columbus, Indiana. The inaugural exhibition in 2017 garnered national media coverage and drew 40,000 visitors from across the region to enjoy world-class architecture and design. This year, Exhibit Columbus will once again transform downtown Columbus with the upcoming exhibition, Good Design and the Community, featuring 18 temporary architectural installations and projects by artists and graphic designers. The exhibition is free and open to the public and runs August 23 through December 1. Experience Opening Weekend August 23–24.
Opening Weekend marks the start of the exhibition and is also a celebration of the entire Columbus community that, for over 75 years, has invested in the belief in the power that art, architecture, and design has to improve peoples’ lives and making cities better places to live.
Later that evening on August 24, experience an evening of cocktails, food, and entertainment at the Opening Night Party in Mill Race Park to toast the designers and community members who made the 2019 Exhibition possible. Tickets and table sponsorships are now available online.
