The news that Junctionview, the influential multi-artist studio space in Grandview, would be closing at the end of April got us thinking about how important an artist's creative space can be to his or her work.

The news that Junctionview, the influential multi-artist studio space in Grandview, would be closing at the end of April so the space can be redeveloped for the shopping, healthcare and housing Grandview Yard project got us thinking about how important an artist's creative space can be to his or her work. We pinpointed four interesting places where art is made in Columbus - from a Junctionview studio to a basement studio, a converted old bar and apartment to a converted old garage - and got a visual tour. Keep your feet and hands inside the car until the tour is complete, lest you get stuck in a studio skate ramp or nicked by a naked-lady-silhouette blade on the Guilt Vent.
