New Short North mural celebrating African American artists debuting soon

I,TOO, SING AMERICA: THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE AT 100 MURAL SERIES IN THE SHORT NORTH ARTS DISTRICT

By Michelle Gibson, Communications & Outreach Coordinator, Short North Alliance

Public art abounds in the Short North Arts District, as showcased in its many beloved murals. Soon, art-adorned-facade fanatics can delight in even more public art with the installation of the Harlem Renaissance 100th Anniversary mural series.

Though the Harlem Renaissance began in New York in 1918, Columbus was among major cities that took part in creating, elevating, and showcasing the work of African American artists.
