OSU Students Are Hosting An Art Show This Weekend At An Old Fire Truck Factory

Want to walk around in a super cool old building and look at some art?

What a coincidence. I do too. And we both can, this weekend at The Fort. Columbus Printed Arts is hosting a Second Year MFA Exhibition from The Ohio State University on August 17 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The show, which is called The Golden Hour, will feature works from 13 MFA students and range in mediums from painting to photography to sculpture and many more in between.

The group of artists shared this about their exhibition:

The Golden Hour marks a brief moment in time when the light is “just so”. At the beginning of our second year of graduate school, this exhibition is a marker that celebrates our collective energy at this particular time. Bringing together art and technology, ceramics, drawing and painting, glass, photography, printmaking, and sculpture, our work demonstrates the breadth and intermingling of our practices.

The show is one night only and is free and open to the public.

The Fort is located at 2000 S. High St. The building was formerly home to the Seagrave Company, who created fire trucks in the building starting in the late 1800s. In 2017, Fortner Upholstery began transforming the block of buildings into a large, creative space, breathing life back into the Steelton Village neighborhood of Columbus.
