Today kicks off the anticipated Columbus Arts Pop-Up Project. All the cool kids are calling it CAP-UP. Thirteen local artists made 10 different window installations for downtown businesses. The artists, who were selected by a jury of city leaders, created a display that either looked toward the future of the capital city or hearkened to its past.
Tonight, join the artists (like Kim Webb, pictured outside her Native American-inspired triptych “Roots” at Sprint) and others for a free walking tour of all the windows followed by a Juror’s Choice Awards ceremony. Party starts at 5:30 p.m. (tour steps off at 6 p.m.) tonight, Sept. 25, at 65. E. State St. downtown. For a full list of the artists and businesses involved and a preview of what each window used as inspiration, go here.
CAP-UP is a collaboration between the Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District and the Greater Columbus Arts Council. Artists Stephanie Rond and Amandda Tirey Graham managed the project, so you know it’s going to be good.
