Today CAPA and the Greater Columbus Arts Council partnered to launch an Art Unites Cbus online gallery to document the works produced during the #ArtUnitesCbus initiative launched on June 1, 2020.
The initiative worked to commision Columbus-based visual artists to decorate the plywood installed over the broken windows at the Ohio Theater and Arts Council office.
Since its launch, many other businesses in Columbus, most notably in the Short North and Huntington Center worked with local artists to cover the boards with murals in response to the Black Lives Matter protest movement.
With many businesses removing their boards, and repairing broken windows, the Arts Council and CAPA are working with Hines Company, and the Short North Alliance to document and preserve the murals as they are removed so they can exist to inspire future generations.
Photos of the murals are available at www.artunitescbus.com, and the site will be regularly updated as more murals are documented in Columbus.
