The Ohio State University Urban Arts Space challenges ways of thinking about the performing and visual arts and their role in everyday life through conversation, art-making, and experimentation. Urban Arts Space encourages transformative experiences that expand worldviews, offers hands-on practical knowledge in the arts and education, and enables new career skills to reflect an entrepreneurial culture.

Ride the Bus
The COTA busline offers convenient service from around Columbus directly into downtown, practically at the doorstep of the OSU Urban Arts Space. Take the #2 bus from OSU campus and get off at the State Street or Town Street stop. The best part: OSU students ride COTA for FREE with their Buck-ID!

A number of bike trails, bike lanes, and shared roadways lead right to the OSU Urban Arts Space. Bike racks are available on Town Street between High and Front, by our Galleria entrance.
