First Public Look at Historic Art Wall Proposed for Long Street Bridge

After months of collaboration, ODOT and the two Ohio artists selected by the community to design a 240 foot cultural wall of historic and iconic images for the Long Street Bridge, presented their artwork to the Columbus Arts Commission (CAC) on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013. This display of public art on a city street required design review before the individual panels that showcase black and white images from the area are manufacturedand, and it was approved by the CAC. This cultural wall will be the first of its kind for the State of Ohio and ODOT.
To learn more about the artists, their work, this bridge project and how the wall will be designed click here for the application to the Columbus Arts Commission. Or view the concepts below.

Artist Concepts Unveiled
On June 21, ODOT unveiled artist concepts for the Long Street Cultural Wall at the King Arts Center in Columbus.

Listen to what the artists themselves envision and see if you can close your eyes and “see” the Cultural Wall through their eyes.


Meeting purpose
Seek comments on the recommended Cultural Wall Artist Concepts that will be shared with the Advisory Group and ODOT for their consideration.
