Junctionview Studios Closing in April
Published on February 10, 2013 9:00 am
The writing has been on the wall for Junctionview Views for over five years. Nationwide Realty Company purchased building in 2007 as a part of their Grandview Yard development, but allowed tenants of the building to continue leasing art studio and event spaces.April 23, 2013 4:21 pm at 4:21 pm #533763
The End of Junctionview Studios
Published on April 23, 2013 12:00 pm
For the better part of the past decade, Junctionview Studios has stood at the center of the Columbus creative community. While the familiar warehouse-turned-art-studios type of venue has been done before, two important things set Junctionview apart from many others. First was its community of artists willing to open their arms beyond their own circles and networks and collaborate with anyone willing to get involved. Second was its wide variety of public events that created a level of openness and friendliness so that it was not an uncommon sight to find young professionals, CCAD students, retirees, corporate leaders, politicians, young families and everyone else intermingling at the day-long Agora art festival events.
All of that comes to a close next week as the lights go out forever in Junctionview. The artists who have studio space there are finishing their move out by the end of April, and the building is scheduled for demolition starting in May.

Junctionview will live on in the vast pile of art supplies my kids scavenged out of the free pile at the end of days sale this past weekend. Thanks to the artists!August 8, 2013 3:08 pm at 3:08 pm #533765
