About 10 years ago, Columbus College of Art and Design administrators decided that a jumble of old, bunker-like buildings didn’t make a campus, especially for creative students. So they drew up some plans, planted a massive red “Art” sculpture in the center of campus and haven’t looked back.

The city surrounding CCAD’s “urban learning community” is catching up. About four years ago, Columbus administrators decided that Downtown life shouldn’t end at 5 p.m. They drew up plans to revitalize the city’s streets and asked businesses and organizations to join in.

The city and college’s plans now go hand in hand.
