COLUMBUS, OH.- On view starting September 30, 2011, Columbus Views celebrates the Bicentennial of the City of Columbus. The exhibition, drawn primarily from CMA’s collection, gathers works by artists who were compelled to translate the charms of the city’s various locales and neighborhoods onto canvas and into photographic prints.

Throughout its history, Columbus has inspired artists again and again to translate the charms of its various locales and neighborhoods. Columbus Views presents a small selection from these artistic gems by artists who recorded their connection to the city on canvas. Some are well-associated with the city, such as Emerson Burkhart, George Bellows, Aminah Robinson, Sid Chafetz, Abdi Roble, Tony Mendoza, or William Hawkins. Other are lesser known and might present a nice surprise for the viewer, such as Charles Rosen, William Parker Little, Ray Kinsman-Waters, or Miriam Frasch.

The exhibition celebrates the city, from the downtown of the 1920s to the downtown of today, and from the University district to the near East side. The hustle of shoppers in front of the original Lazarus store, the old Broad Street bridge over the Scioto River, the shuffle of students across The Ohio State University’s Oval on a cold day, or the rooftops of German Village are all recorded with empathy, often humor, and always a sense of ownership that comes from belonging to a community.

The Columbus Museum of Art joins the City of Columbus in celebrating our great city’s Bicentennial with programs and exhibitions throughout 2011 and 2012. Columbus Views commemorates the Columbus Bicentennial by highlighting artistic depictions of the city.
