I’m very excited to announce that the Columbus Invitational Arts Competition is joining forces with the Independent’s Day Festival to present our events together, September 17th and 18th, 2016. Our Visual Arts Exhibition will be hosted at the Vanderelli Room, and our Performing Arts Showcase is tentatively scheduled to appear at Strongwater.
After starting from humble beginnings less than a decade ago, Independent’s Day has increased exponentially to become of of Columbus’ largest and most successful street festivals, and a key part of the Franklinton arts renaissance. As part of our partnership, I’ll be joining the Independent’s Day leadership team as the Assistant Creative Director, with a special emphasis on diversity and outreach. More details as they become available.
