Your Guide To Fantastic Street Art Around Columbus

The popularity of street art is on the rise in Columbus.

Columbus has built a reputation as being a very arts-friendly city. And while that’s certainly true, most of that art has happened in traditional viewing spaces like museums and galleries. Until relatively recently, that is.

The popularity of street art is flourishing in our city right now, and honestly, it’s about time. I love living in a city with colorful murals and thought-provoking art installations, especially when they’re completely free to admire.
