About those new Short North murals

Posted by Jackie Mantey | August 03, 2012 03:09 PM

This evening 10 galleries in the Short North are opening new exhibits. In conjunction with the openings are murals that are high-resolution vinyl photographs of works by artists from those 10 galleries. (You’ve probably seen them going up on buildings across the district this week as part of the 10x10x10 mural project.) The outdoor works range in size from 120 to 200 square feet. They’ll be up for at least a year, according to the Short North Alliance. Go visit the exhibit openings tonight—or there’s always Gallery Hop tomorrow—and check out each mural. Following is a quick list of who made each work of art in the mural and where it is located (the partner galleries are also where you’ll find new exhibits tonight and this weekend):
