A Massive Suspended Art Installation Has Been Proposed In The Heart Of Downtown

An exciting new art installation is being proposed Downtown.

An application for review of a Janet Echelman designed art sculpture has been submitted to the downtown commission. The sculpture would be suspended above the interest icon at Gay and High Streets in the heart of downtown Columbus, anchored to the four buildings at the corners of the intersection.

The blue and red fabric sculpture is abstract and massive, stretching 180 feet long, 60 feet high and 50 feet across. The propasal for the sculpture is being brought by Columbus development firm Edwards Cos.

Echelman is a world-renowned artist, with sculptures across five continents and in major world cities like Singapore, Shanghai, New York, Boston, London, and more.

Edwards Companies has taken the development of the intersection at Gay and High street for years, having renovated the Citizens Bank building and building the Nicholas mixed-use building.

The scuplture application will be presented at this month’s Downtown Commission meeting on Wednesday, December 15 at 8:30 a.m.. You can live stream the meeting on YouTube.
