What is Outreach? What is Urban Scrawl?
Franklinton Arts District is a group of creative and diverse people committed to fostering a vibrant arts community in historic Franklinton by providing bold and innovative opportunities to artists and art enthusiasts.
See more than 50 local artists create live murals at Urban Scrawl #12!
Franklinton Arts District invites you to join in the celebration of art in Franklinton as Urban Scrawl turns 12 on August 25-26, 2018 at 400 West Rich.
Urban Scrawl features the live creation of murals by more than 50 artists from the Columbus area and beyond. Capturing the best of what summer festivals have to offer, you won’t want to miss local food trucks and beverages, DJs and, of course, artists.
Help support your local arts community, and watch as the murals that will be auctioned at the next spring’s Art for Franklinton fundraiser are created. The proceeds from Urban Scrawl benefit the George Bellows Grant Program which provides arts funding in Franklinton.
"140 artists collaborated at our tent over this two day event to paint the suction cups for inky the octopus arms! The Super Art League Staff painted the body and the kid community was invited to become part of this art venture by painting the 3 to 5 inch round shapes. The results are a collaboration of epic size and among a community of epic talent.
Thank you Franklinton Arts District!"
