LED-Lit Sculpture Debuts at The Castle Short North
A public art sculpture by Columbus artists Stephen Canneto and Judith Spater has been unveiled at The Castle, 985 N High St., in the Short North.
The suspended, three-part sculpture — dubbed “Jubilation” — is 25 feet in length and is lit by Bluetooth-controlled LEDs that change color by the minute. “Jubilation” is a project of the Short North Alliance, with support from the Ingram White Castle Foundation and the Borror Family Foundation. (Borror is the developer of The Castle.)
Canneto is a public art veteran, a double entendre given his career in art and previous military service, who has created works for over 40 years. His work has been featured Downtown and at Franklin Park Conservatory, and along with partner and artistic collaborator Judith Spader, he’s created artwork throughout Ohio for both public and private spaces.
“Our vision for ‘Jubilation’ was quite simply the celebration of the Short North as a vital and exuberant community of innovative visionaries,” said Spader in a press release.
“With all of the recent growth and development in the Short North Arts District, investments in public art are made ever more important,” said Betsy Pandora, executive director of the Short North Alliance. “Both the Borror and Ingram families have demonstrated a remarkable commitment to supporting local artists and enlivening the Short North Arts District through public art – leaving a lasting impact on our community.”
