Crediting Our Public Artists
Taking images of public art works and sharing your experiences is one of the most fun reasons to engage with public art. As a community, we care deeply about the artists who have contributed the artworks we enjoy every day. Please be sure to credit artists when you share your photos. If you have an interest in using public artwork present in this database for commercial purposes, please contact Jami Goldstein at the Greater Columbus Arts Council. Taking your own images of public artwork does not release you from the responsibility of artist credit and/or compensation.
Public Art Database Support and Partners
This site is produced and managed by the Greater Columbus Arts Council and supported by public art collections across the state.

The database was funded in part by a grant from the Ohio Arts Council. Research and development support was provided by Designing Local, OSA Technology Partners and Columbus artist Stephanie Rond. The Columbus Makes Art campaign and ColumbusMakesArt.com are part of the citywide, collaborative marketing effort designed to highlight the incredible talent of central Ohio artists and connect people with arts experiences. ArtsinOhio.com is the statewide cultural calendar of events and public art. The Greater Columbus Arts Council is supported by the City of Columbus, Franklin County Commissioners and the Ohio Arts Council.
