About This Art Walk

The Franklinton Art Walk will lead you through the first settlement in Central Ohio and the future site of Columbus’ Creative Community District. Experience some of the oldest historical sites in Columbus, vivid murals, and new projects around every corner. You’ll find vacant buildings transformed by street art, proof that Lucas Sullivant was there, an energetic community no longer in “the Bottoms,” and much more!
