Curated by Melissa Wolfe from the Columbus Museum of Art, 100 Years of Art serves as a tribute to Columbus’ Bicentennial celebration. Covering a wide variety of media and artistic styles, the work in 100 Years of Art reveals the changing face of the capital city’s artistic community. The 53 artists represented in this exhibition were influenced by local and national artistic developments as they helped to establish the creative backdrop that still exists in Columbus today.
