What’s Going on COSS Weekend?

Our space will be open from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 29 and Sunday, September 30 for Columbus Open Studio & Stage. Throughout each day, you can experience self-guided tours of nine visual arts studio spaces, the CAC Art Shop, Courtyard, and two gallery spaces! You may also participate in the community art project, CAC ART ROCKS!, which is a creative approach to spread not only art but positivity and fun all over the city!

Hypotheses: Art Inspired by the Many Worlds of Science will be opening in the CAC Main Gallery on Friday, September 28. Guest curated by Amandda Tirey, this exhibition of contemporary works produced by Ohio artists explores how concepts and discoveries from all branches of science inspire the creation of art. The exhibition is in partnership with COSI and the Fuse Factory and will be open during Columbus Open Studio & Stage.

You will enter our building through one of two side doors into the gallery or studio. A ramp on the south side of the building leads to the loading dock and is handicap accessible.
