Next weekend, Short North Gallery Hop will be the place to be.

Held on the first Saturday of each month, Gallery Hop has been a weekend tradition in the Short North Arts District for years. On August 7, it will be a particularly exciting edition of the event.

There will be seven new art exhibitions, events celebrating the debut of The Makers Monument, a new Makers Marketplace, and the kick off of Summer Spray, a collaborative mural event featuring local artists.

In celebration of The Makers Monument, which was the largest single investment in public art in Columbus, August Gallery Hop will feature a dedication ceremony, artist talk, and reception with Mark Reigelman at WeWork Short North.

The Short North Arts District Makers Marketplace will be held in Poplar Park and feature several local makers. For more event information about the Makers Monument events, please click here.

This year’s Summer Spray will feature local artists working in collaboration on a 1,280-square-foot mural wall. Summer Spray artists include Apeg Design, Khaila Carr, Mrrobotgeek, Nicholas Schukay, Sarah Hout, Hakim Callwood, Derrick Calender, Lance Johnson, FDZgraffiti and Andrea Myers.
