Urban Scrawl 10

August 27, 2016 - August 28, 2016



Urban Scrawl is a 2-day arts festival organized by the Franklinton Arts District featuring the live creation of murals by talented artists from central Ohio and beyond. Since 2007, Urban Scrawl has provided Columbus artists a way to showcase their talent while participating in Central Ohio’s largest ongoing urban renewal project. Each year the number of participants, murals, sponsors, and attendees grows making this a landmark summer event in Columbus, Ohio.

These completed murals are now being made available for purchase annually at the Art for Franklinton fundraiser auction to benefit Franklinton Arts District’s new George Bellows Artist Grants program. Other murals not appearing in the fundraiser auction are weather-sealed and mounted publicly in the neighborhood, in cooperation with local businesses, to help enliven the community of Franklinton, Central Ohio’s historic first settlement.

The 2-day, free event features:

  • A DJ, MC, and Breakdancing stage presented by Squared
  • Cold Beer from Rhinegeist and cocktails from Middle West Spirits
  • Great local food trucks
  • A Children’s art space featuring collaborative kids art projects
  • Custom t-shirt screen printing on-site from Positive Negative Press
  • Art awards to be given for Crowd Favorite, Franklinton Arts District Board Favorite, and Artist Favorite
