2012 — the year Columbus celebrated its bicentennial birthday — was also a big year for public art installations. That celebration has continued with more works of art being installed throughout the city well into 2015. We decided to ask our readers for the first time about their favorite public art displays of the year, and the number one pick was a newer installation: The Scioto Deer. Three anthropomorphic statues designed by Terry Allen have appeared in places along the riverfront, taking in the scenery just as many humans have done since the completion of the riverfront’s redevelopment. The statues have been spotted quite often in selfies and Instagram photos, proving to be popular for interactivity.

The Top 10 Columbus Public Art Displays of 2015:

  1. Bronze Deer Statues on Riverfront
  2. Short North Murals
  3. Outdoor Sculpture at the Columbus Museum of Art
  4. CCAD ART Sign
  5. The Topiary Park
