The Greater Columbus Arts Council (GCAC) presents Art Spot, a collection of 13 window installations designed by Columbus-area artists, on display around downtown Columbus and the Short North Arts District from mid-December through June 2023. As part of GCAC’s ongoing mission to connect art with the people and places of Columbus, Art Spot is designed to highlight the city’s artists while promoting engagement between residents, visitors, and downtown businesses.
A LEED Gold rating means that renovation of the century-old Lazarus department store achieved a high level of environmental sustainability in site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. A “living” roof reduces summer heat buildup and slows water runoff. This pre-tour is free but due to space considerations will be limited to 20 people.
What we will do: Both the pre-tour and the Climate Conversations Art Walk will start at the Lazarus Galleria where exhibits showcase the LEED renovation. The art walk around downtown Columbus is approximately 2 miles to visit 9 art spots while completing a climate change quiz. Evening ends with a snack break at one of the downtown spots, like Condado Tacos or The Goat RiverSouth on High Street.
