Exhibit Columbus

Exhibit Columbus, the annual exploration of architecture, art, design, and community, continues to celebrate the design legacy of Columbus, Indiana, with the opening of its second major exhibition the weekend of August 23-24, with two days of programming. 
 
The exhibition will feature 18 site-responsive installations by architects, designers, academics, artists, and graphic designers. These designers have created outdoor installations and experiences that use Columbus’ built heritage as inspiration and context, while highlighting the role that visionary community plays in growing a vibrant, sustainable, and equitable city. The exhibition is free and open to the public, and will transform downtown Columbus through December 1. 
 
For inspiration, Exhibit Columbus looked to the 1986 exhibition, Good Design and the Community: Columbus, Indiana, created when Columbus business leader and philanthropist J. Irwin Miller became the first person inducted into the National Building Museum Hall of Fame in Washington. Mr. Miller chose to emphasize the community’s process and involvement in building, rather than the architecture itself, as a source of his hometown pride: “Architecture is something you can see. You cannot see a spirit or a temperament or a character, though, and there’s an invisible part of this community of which I am very proud because, in a democracy, I think that the process is more important than the product.”
