Columbus is so photogenic and so are you! Combine the two and you’ve got yourself a match made in Instagram heaven.
Leave it to these six public art displays around Columbus to provide a beautiful backdrop to make you look as cool and cultured as the city itself.
BrewDog Short North | 1175 N High St, Columbus
It’s no wonder why BrewDog went with their name: There’s no better combo on earth. Take this photo by @team_toller for example. Grab your pooch, pick a pint, and snap a pic in front of BrewDog Short North’s aquatic fantasy wall!
Crew Mural | Corner of Hudson and Summit
Chris Blain, who told the Save The Crew Blog that he’s been attending matches since the Columbus Crew started their inaugural season in Ohio Stadium, erected this prideful piece on the corner of Hudson and Summit in the thick of the #SaveTheCrew moment. Now that Columbus Crew SC has been officially saved, this visual project stands as a testament to the pride, power, and spirit of the Columbus soccer community. What a perfect spot to showcase your city’s resilience!
Olde Towne East | Corner of Oak and 18th
Clint Davidson beautified this Olde Towne East wall as a token of respect for the neighborhood, and to give its residents a physical place to reflect upon it. However, Davidson feels the artful landmark has turned into a tool for developers to monetize the up-and-coming part of town. When passing by or seeking out this art, remember to be considerate of the art, the artist, and Olde Towne East’s rich history.

Columbus Love | Downtown on Main Street near Fourth Street
“Columbus” by day, “Love” by night. This LED street art designed by Alex Haldi and created by NKdsgn/Nick Kinney is the perfect place to show your L-O-V-E for your city. Make an evening of it by hitting up the nearby Mikey’s Late Night Slice, Hadley’s, Dirty Frank’s, 16-Bit and more after your photoshoot.
These words aren’t enough for us | N. High and E. Poplar Short North
The Short North has become a canvas for local artists to showcase their work, like this work by Columbus creative writer David Skeens. Like he says, let your photo say the 1,000 words. View other Short North murals here.
Scioto Mile Deer | Throughout Scioto Mile
As part of the 2015 revitalization of the Scioto Mile, artist Terry Allen was commissioned to install art throughout the area. After learning “Scioto” meant deer in Native American, Allen set forth to create thought-provoking works to represent the rebirth of Columbus’ waterfront geography. And so, three friendly bronze deer were dispersed throughout the Scioto Mile: one overlooking the river on the Rich Street Bridge, one relaxing on a riverbank, and one hanging out in Genoa Park. Three deer, three unique views of the city, three amazing photo ops.
