Capital Crossroads SID Notes 

 

Bold Booths

Bold Booths is a collaboration between The Ohio State University, Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District and leading professional designers. Originally, the project was part of Finding Time: Columbus Public Art 2012, a program to install multiple public art displays across the downtown cityscape during Columbus' bicentennial. Five Columbus architects were commissioned to design parking attendant booths or stations for self-pay parking in downtown. Time and money constraints meant that only the designs were developed that year, but Malcolm Cochran, Finding Time project director and professor emeritus of Art, and Cleve Ricksecker, executive director of Capital Crossroads SID, pushed forward with the project, and the first booth will be completed this fall. Designed by Beth Blostein, Associate Professor of Architecture, and her partner Bart Overly, the booth will be located in the parking lot of the Westin Columbus - Great Southern Hotel. http://outreach.osu.edu/newslist-items/boldbooths.html 

 

Capital Crossroads and Discovery Special Improvement Districts 2014 Annual Meeting and Downtown Awards

November 19, 4 - 5:30 p.m.

Columbus State Community College Center for Workforce Development, 315 Cleveland Ave.

4 p.m., Entertainment; 4:15 p.m., Program Begins; 5 p.m. Cocktails and Conversation

How do we change the conversation when naysayers talk about old-school ways of doing business of long car commutes and hours isolated in front of glowing computer screens? Join Capital Crossroads and Discovery SIDs in welcoming Lee Fisher, President and CEO or CEOs for Cities, who will talk about what is necessary to achieve great Downtown Dividends. National trends show talented up-and-comers demand access, connectivity and flexibility, which bring good things Downtown. Lee will talk about the huge economic shifts, which occur with some surprisingly small changes. For questions and to RSVP, please contact Kathryn Hille at 614.645.5005 or kahille@sidservices.com

Angela Meleca Gallery

This exhibition marks the one-year anniversary of Angela Meleca Gallery and is the first solo show of Pfarr's work in Central Ohio.

Fresh A.I.R. Gallery

Chase Bowman is a recent MFA graduate of Columbus College of Art & Design and a current Gabr Fellow traveling around the world. Originally from West Virginia, Bowman "turned to comic books, adventure stories and other forms of entertainment to navigate the complex ways that people engage one another. What started out as a crutch became a primary way of viewing the world: normally sad, boring, frightening or confusing situations could be turned into a grand adventure with a very definite sense of good and evil, morals to be upheld and injustices to be thwarted." http://www.southeastinc.com 

 

Exhibit: Tom Burkhardt: FULL STOP

Now through November 20

ROOM, CCAD Canzani Center

FULL STOP is a full-scale, highly-detailed replica of an artist's studio made entirely of cardboard and black paint. But at the center is a blank canvas sitting on an easel. http://www.ccad.edu

 

DRIVEbys: An exhibition of unconventional architecture for the most conventional thing

The Columbus Idea Foundry

Five Columbus architects developed designs for Bold Booths, an original and innovative proposal for attendant booths at downtown surface parking lots, as part of Finding Time: ColumbusPublicArt2012. Designs and models for the micro-buildings will be unveiled in the exhibition. DRIVEbys will document projects by Jonathan Barnes Architecture and Design, BAWorkshop, Blostein/Overly Architects, Neal Clements, and Design Group. The exhibition is curated and designed by Beth Blostein, Associate Professor, Knowlton School of Architecture, and Bart Overly, Blostein/Overly Architects. The exhibition and reception are hosted by the Downtown Residents Association of Columbus and are open to the public. An Engagement/Impact Grant from The Ohio State University Office of Outreach and Engagement is providing primary support for this initiative and the DRIVEbys exhibition. Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District is the community partner for the program.

 

The curatorial team for Finding Time: ColumbusPublicArt 2012 identified a series of standard parking attendant booths as locations for fantastic riffs on these banal and re-occurring elements. Originally planned as temporary installations, the project has evolved to make these installations permanent design fixtures. Independent and spread out across the downtown core, each project will operate within site, function and economic constraints to produce transformative urban experiences. Work is now underway to construct five booths by the end of 2015. The first installation, designed by Blostein/Overly Architects, will take place at the Westin Great Southern Hotel. The second, designed by BAWorkshop, will be constructed at the Eckl Parking Company lot on the southwest corner of High and Long streets. http://www.boldbooths.org/drivebys/

Exhibit: Almond Zigmund

Now through January 8

CCAD Canzani Center Gallery

Almond Zigmund's work sharpens out perceptions of space while exploring the nature of opposition.
