Wow, nice dig! That certainly looks much more appealing (visually) than the proposed sculpture for the Scioto Mile. It’s simple and doesn’t resemble a damn cooling tower.
the funny thing is thats how some actual cooling towers are constructed. Straight beams at an angle to make the overall shape (then other stuff added of course, like the concrete), as opposed to the way the proposed scioto sculpture uses bent beams in the frame. In this case the artist simply angled the beams differently.January 19, 2012 3:04 pm at 3:04 pm #440871January 19, 2012 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm #440872
I remember this from some survey course I took. Pretty cool.
It will be great to have more public art in Columbus.
Love me some Tatlin, way back when commie art/architecture was inspiring…maybe that was why it was never built?

SCIOTO MILE SHAPING UP TO BE THE PLACE TO SHAPE UP
While fitness might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the Scioto Mile, it is shaping up to be a popular place for people to get in shape as well. There are 22 runs, walks, and bike rides currently scheduled to take place along the Mile this year. These fitness events represent a variety of causes, organizations, and levels of intensity—the calendar includes everything from the Central Ohio Diabetes Family Fun Walk & Run to the Giant Eagle MultiSport Festival, which includes a triathlon. Also this year the Scioto Mile will serve as the new start line for the Capital City Half Marathon and will be the location for the Inaugural Scioto Mile(s) training series.

What a terrific video … I hope people take the time to view this video and appreciate what the artist and the city have done to make this happen.May 27, 2012 7:20 pm at 7:20 pm #440880
Stopped by today with the kids to let them splash and play. Had a really great time, as did half the city, if my headcount was correct. ;)
Anyway, just wanted to reiterate how much I love having this amenity in the heart of Downtown. This is public space done right.May 27, 2012 7:22 pm at 7:22 pm #440881
I was there last weekend around 10 pm and Milestone 229 was PACKED, some kids running around the fountains and alot of people walking on the bridges.May 27, 2012 7:28 pm at 7:28 pm #440882
Yeah, we were just at Milestone on Friday night for dinner, so this was our second trip over there this weekend. ;) Ha!May 27, 2012 8:48 pm at 8:48 pm #440883

The sheer number of people enjoying the city and the outdoors is wonderful.
The prospect of turning the riverfront into a destination up and down the river is heightened by the success the fountains/Milestone have had. One hopes that with the dams removed and the river narrowed, we’ll see canoeing and kayaking and more recreational use of the riverfront, with businesses and the city collaborating to create more and more unique hosts to those in our city.May 28, 2012 4:47 am at 4:47 am #440884
Lets get that dam removed!!!! HAHAHA
