Annual auction benefits Franklinton Arts District grant program

Remember those cool murals that awesome Columbus artists painted at last summer's Urban Scrawl? You want one?

The annual Art for Franklinton Benefit Auction is an opportunity to bid on the completed works. Proceeds from the event benefit the George Bellows Grant Program, which provides funding in support of artists and art and culture projects that benefit the Franklinton community.

Former Columbus mayor Michael Coleman will serve as Master of Ceremonies for this year's event, set for Saturday, May 20, at the Columbus Idea Foundry.
