Explore Public Art In Columbus With This New App

Finding new public art around town has never been easier.

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of public art installations around here. That’s why we were pretty excited to hear that the Greater Columbus Arts Council and Can’t Stop Cbus have teamed up to launch the Cbus ArtWalks App. The community-wide volunteer effort was launched in response to the pandemic and the app is now available in the Apple and Google for Android app stores.

The Columbus Makes Art Public Art database launched in 2019. Using that data, the Cbus ArtWalks app will help residents and visitors alike find outdoor and indoor public art. Users will be able to search by neighborhood art by title or artist name. Nearly 1,000 pieces of public art in Central Ohio are included, with descriptions and photos of each piece.

The Cbus ArtWalks app will also feature collections built around themes and it has launched with a Columbus African American sculptors tour.

“The presence of public art has been growing exponentially throughout Columbus in recent years, and this app makes it easy for everyone to discover murals, sculptures, installations and more,” said Jami Goldstein, vice president of marketing, communications and events for the Arts Council. “From sculptures installed in decades past to new murals painted in response to the 2020 protests, the database captures it all and makes it accessible to residents and visitors alike.”
