Surthrive in the Heartland
Exhibition Date: Thursday, August 15, 2013 - Saturday, September 21, 2013
Thursday | August 29 | 5 to 7pm
The historic Lazarus Building’s rooftop garden collects the strongest and most resilient plants from all corners of the Earth and brings them to the heartland, and the center of Columbus. Sponsored by The Arts Initiative, City Center Gallery draws inspiration from the self-sustaining plants located on the green roof, and calls local and emerging artists to interpret, recreate, or be inspired by one of 25 plants and their ability to “surthrive."
Founded to serve as a facilitator for independent local art, City Center Gallery recognizes and assists emerging Columbus artists who are forging innovative careers and expanding conceptual practices. Through the leadership of student assistants and the guidance of staff advisers, City Center Gallery commits itself to the current cultural revitalization of downtown Columbus by: providing professional experience, amplifying Curriculum Vitaes, and assisting artists in all exhibiting processes.
