About City Center Gallery


City Center Gallery, located at Urban Arts Space, is focused on and dedicated to supporting emerging Ohio-based artists. The gallery is managed and programmed by a staff of Ohio State students who are guided and supported by a team of professional advisers.

City Center Gallery is a vital part of Urban Arts Space's mission to provide Ohio State students a rigorous and hands-on experience in all aspects of gallery organization and presentation. With its focus on supporting work by Ohio-based artists (both emerging and not), the gallery offers a unique showcase deeply engaged with art creation in the state of Ohio.

The cornerstone of City Center exhibition programming is the annual Summer series, which is curated and programmed after an extensive selection process from proposals submitted by artists and curators from the state of Ohio.
