Artists Create The Big Tablecloths: Bryan Moss
Local Artists Interpret The Big Table through work
To kick off and promote this year’s Big Table, taking place all across central Ohio on August 28, The Columbus Foundation commissioned local artists to interpret what coming together as a community means to them. Through these mixed-media tablecloths, artists showcased their creative talent and their love for the Columbus community—in hopes to inspire all residents (like YOU) to participate in a community conversation on August 28.
This “Big Tablecloth” was completed by Bryan Moss. He shared, “The concept behind breakin-bread (to share a meal) comes from an Anthony Bourdain quote that I read after his passing. ‘You can learn a lot about someone when you share a meal together.’ Even though the quote is simple there is something profound in that simplicity. We all have to eat, and food is an amazing tool to use to disarm our differences and allows us to focus on what we have in common.”
The Big Table does just that—bringing neighbors, friends, and strangers together for open, thoughtful conversations that will spark new relationships and new ways for working together to strengthen our community. Any and all are welcome and encouraged to host or join a Big Table conversation! Learn how you can participate.
We’ll be sharing highlights of the other “Big Tablecloths” as we get closer to Big Table day. In the meantime, share your excitement and your past Big Table experiences with #TheBigTable!
