I hear some really good buzz about the influence of ColumbUS200 on this years event. I have some big ideas that I hope to execute this year. Stoked top watch it all develop!!
The Long Street area is set for a huge public art project in 2013 from my grapevine info.
I always enjoy when someone posts something street art related on CU and it gets a positive response. Very surprised that we haven’t seen a really good Eco-Graffiti artist in Columbus Yet.
I’m loving the addition of the TOOP and the other side of the story. No matter what my feelings on the development are it is always good for all to see both sides of a story and even more so when the people reading may have or may intend to shell out some seed bucks to help Wonderland gain traction. In the end it’s healthy for everyone!January 12, 2012 2:17 am at 2:17 am in reply to: Columbus Museum of Art looking for submissions to highlight for Bicentennial #476795
Thank you Patient_Z for the info
I just found some drawings from 1959 of buildings around Columbus and OSU campus. I have been on a wild goose chase to find more information about the artists and subject matter involved. Super into suggestions if anyone has a good historical source around town.
The City of Columbus calls it that. Google maps calls it that.
fifth by northwest on Google maps indicates the area the same exact way that they identify Kingswood apartments. So I wouldn’t consider that an official source for the name used by few.
Personally I think that this kind of micro name for a neighborhood is just silly and pointless unless the neighborhood has a specific draw that deserves a specific title. The Short North Arts District is a great example of this, but 5xnw is pretty much the worst ever. If we had to rename each section of the city that has a Chipotle and a UDF as some new section of Columbus that deserves merrit then we are all spinning our wheels in the wrong direction.
Doesn’t look bad to me. As a Grandview homeowner, I’m happy to have something there besides an aging warehouse. Did you ever drive back around some of the old manufacturing around there? Crummy rotting buildings. I see a decent amount of green space and decent building design. I also like that it’s completely separate from Grandview really– I can reap the reward and walk/bike/drive home and not feel in the shadow of this new monstrous development.
HAHA did you ever take the time to investigate those old warehouses and what they are creating? One of the most creative hubs in Columbus art has been back there for years creating events that go far bayond anything else happening in Grandview. Throw in the Ohio Roller Girls space and other valuable companies like Loeb Electric and I think that that old district of Grandview makes up for some serious lack in that part of town. What Grandview really needs is 3-4 donut shops so that the stupid police have something far better to do than harass the residents and visitors to their community. Then again someone had to replace New Rome!
Sometimes the BEST efforts of others doesn’t cut it and you must go above and beyond. Seems like huge a waste of time and money no matter if they were donated or not when the park could use energy and money devoted to actual upkeep and not just a sad eyesore that was an attempt to have a visual aesthetic added to the park. This is a sad fail no matter who you point the finger at in the long run.
I shall be at Brothers Drake for their NYE Celebrations. Come drink mead!
I will also be looking forward to NYE at Brothers Drake Meadery as i will have a series of new Mead inspired paintings on display along side of Cyrus Fire. Thanks to Gallery 83 for cordinating.
I also hope to make the party at the new Rendezvous Salon/Kobo for the Evolved family party.
Not what I said at all. I implied these people dont want to be artists they want to destroy other people’s property.
also, for calling me a creep, I’m gonna call you a delusional idiot. So we’re even.
I think that it’s rather funny that you can determine what someones goals and motivation is when you have never spoken to any of these people. How can you be so sure what someone wants out of life unless you open the dialog with that person. I’m sorry that your getting so upset by the ignorance that you portray, but unless you have facts your simply speaking in hypathetical only to appeal to yourself at this point. I challenge you to have a real conversation with a tagger, graffiti artist, stencil artist, or even a wheat paster and find what the motivation really is and what the end goals for that person would be. Graffiti supplies are sold at the art stores these days and anyone that wakes up saying I need to go to the art store is an artist in my book. They may not be the most practiced or best artist around, but that is where the nurturing part comes in.
Coreroc, I was told that you have a tag in the men’s room at Surly Girl. Is that true?
100% incorrect! I have far too much respect for Surly, Liz, Carmen, and that entire operation to do something silly like tag the bathroom. matter of fact you would be hard pressed to find any tags of mine in any public bathroom these days. 10 years ago might be a different story.
you keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better. It’s the funniest most Pollyanna pie in the sky horseshit I’ve ever read on CU and that’s up against some pretty stiff competition.
So what your saying is that it’s not right to nurture kids in the right direction? and I’m crazy for thinking it’s right to nurture ones artistic desires? Interesting logic you have Rockmaster I must say and thanks for passing such judgement, but your view is crazy skewed here. Then again you sit around at night and listen to police scanners which might just be the creepiest thing I have heard in a while. Get a life and nurture something of your own as you obviously have far too much time on your hands.
@cookie the ages vary but plenty of them started in their teens as do most graffiti writers.
man, if only it were poor, neglected, underage kids with no guidance that constituted the tagger population. Maybe that description will work with some, but not many. we’re talking about suburban kids, kids with parents who drive nice cars, kids that get to go to art school.
I love how everyone is an expert on the graffiti demographic anymore. Sadly you guys are very clueless and on the outside here. However it all becomes about what makes us feel beter as individuals in the end so assume away!
