Make plans to attend Exhibit Columbus 2019

The 2019 exhibition expands on the curatorial theme in a tangible way by inviting architects and designers to create outdoor installations and experiences that use Columbus’ built heritage as inspiration and context, while highlighting the role that a visionary community plays in growing a vibrant, sustainable, and equitable city.

The second Exhibit Columbus exhibition runs Aug 24 – Dec 1, 2019.
