Photos: The Gravity Project Block Party at Art Bazaar
The Gravity project by Kaufman Development celebrated the launch of its community arts initiative with a block party at Art Bazaar on Friday, August 24, right across the street from the nearly completed development at 500 W. Broad St. in Franklinton. The block party also celebrated the completion of two of the initiative’s murals commissioned by Gravity: a five-story self-portrait of the world-renowned street artist Eduardo Kobra, and a 210-foot-wide mural by Portland artists Rather Severe.
The event also featured an art marketplace with nearly a dozen local artists, music by Columbus DJ iB-Rease, craft beer and wine courtesy of Land Grant, and food from Mikey’s Late Night Slice, Juniors Tacos, and Sweet Tooth Ice Cream. Midway into the evening, Q&A’s were held with the event’s featured muralists.
The Gravity project’s arts initiative will include the work of more than 25 artists. The initiative is a part of the project’s larger mission to “bring like-minded people, programs, and spaces together to live and work with intention.”
