How it works:

With guidance from a small team of professional staff, City Center Gallery is managed by high-achieving Urban Arts Space student assistants. These students are in charge of selecting artists, installing exhibitions, and marketing the shows. The City Center Gallery Voting Committee regularly reviews submissions for exhibitions and ranks all eligible proposals on a 5-point scale. Once final scores are tabulated, the top three scoring proposals enter a discussion by committee members, where the forthcoming exhibition is selected. Select months, City Center Gallery hosts a new solo or group exhibition and welcomes the public to discover Columbus’ creativity. To view City Center Gallery's exhibition archive, please click here.
