In conjunction with the Greater Columbus Arts Council, 200Columbus, Chase Bank and partner Homes on the Hill, CDC, The Hilltop Business Association is hosting a public arts initiative on September 8 in the Highland West District of West Broad St – pARTy on the Hill

The Hilltop Community has a bold and vibrant vision for its revitalization. Public art has long been known to open minds, improve quality of life and accelerate neighborhood revitalizations. To showcase this bold vision, the Hilltop Community has commissioned well-known, homegrown artist Roger Williams to create a mural work that would visually represent the Hilltop’s vision for the future and commitment to revitalization.  Roger will have works in the new Hilton Hotel and Ron Pizzuti’s Joseph Gallery. Other works to be installed will honor the Hilltop past and present. 

To connect the community’s goals of promoting community pride, health, and beautification, Columbus Public Health’s Healthy Places Program will develop a Hilltop Art Walk that honors Hilltop’s connections to Columbus’ past, celebrates the new and existing works of art and architecture, and will annually update the Art Walk to accommodate future projects.  The Art Walk program features pocket-size neighborhood walking maps of highlighted sites, an audio tour accessible via phone or through the City of Columbus’s mobile smartphone application, MyColumbus, signage at each art walk site, and educational resources distributed to local schools encouraging art walk field trips. The Columbus Art Walk program was created in 2010 and highlights public art, architectural, and historical sites in over nine Columbus neighborhoods.

We hope to see you Saturday September 8 enjoying these public art pieces and having a healthy stroll.
