The Harlem Renaissance Experience at Gallery Hop

August 4, 2018 4:00 pm @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm

On Gallery Hop Saturday, join us as visitors celebrate art throughout the evening with new gallery exhibitions, street performers, special events, food, and drinks throughout the District. With dozens of galleries and non-traditional exhibit spaces, it’s Columbus’ favorite night of the month to celebrate art.

At last, the Harlem Renaissance Experience at Gallery Hop has come along. The sweet sounds of music and the vibrant hues of original murals will fill the streets of the Short North. Join us as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance* by showcasing and celebrating our local African American artists.

New attractions await you around every corner. Step into any of the 10 galleries. Each one has curated exhibitions featuring local African American artists. Step out into the summer air and take in the 12 original murals. Shake hands with artists. Walk the streets.

And, of course, step down the sidewalk — you’ll be greeted by live performances, movie screenings, poetry, dance and more.

It’s time for a night on the town.

*The Harlem Renaissance at 100 in Columbus

Why are we celebrating the anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance in the middle of Ohio? Allow us to elucidate. The Harlem Renaissance was and is a national affair. It represents an explosion of cultural pride and celebration. The ramifications of that movement reverberated across the entire nation — especially Columbus. We have a lot to celebrate. We hope you’ll join us.
