To me, this symbolizes that each person may have different dreams but are equally valuable. The key is giving back so others can grow and become who they are destined to become.
One Sunday morning I decided to take a break from my Covid-19 quarantine and take a car ride. While riding down Mt Vernon Avenue, I saw a sign that said, “Affirm Black Life”. I thought I saw an arrow, so I decided to park my car to investigate.
It is the largest fresh food distribution in central Ohio and one of the top twenty in the country. We are seeing more than seven hundred people a day.
I love the splash of color! In my opinion, it looks much better than seeing plywood all over downtown. It also allows residents and visitors to be exposed to and appreciate some of the talent of the artists who live in the area.
I love watching artists collaborate and create!
The piece with the toilet paper! As time goes on, it is easy to forget how scarce toilet paper was earlier this year. Toilet paper was almost like currency. Lysol is still hard to find! Who would have thought toilet paper, disinfecting wipes, and Lysol spray would be so scarce/valuable?
I love seeing artists create live. One of my favorite festivals was cancelled (Columbus Arts Festival). I know, I know they had virtual activities. But, to me it’s not the same. I love being able to interact with the artists.
In my opinion this work represents unity. Just by viewing the artists pictures it is obvious that they are different. Each artist worked together bringing their talents to produce a cohesive piece.

My father is L.B. Towns. He has 19 children. We are all out here as a family. We range in age from 44 to 1 year old. My father was Buster Douglas’ corner man when he fought Tyson.
I had no idea that this park is in Columbus. The first of its kind in the nation. We are trailblazers!
It is our chocolate based ice cream that won best ice cream in America by People Magazine back in 1983. We add fudge brownie pieces to it. It is a very decadent and rich ice cream.
I LOVE THE VIBE OF THE STORE. This is a stretch with the vibrant colors but it reminds me of the store set of the Andy Griffith show (if the Andy Griffith show was in color).
Franklinton is an Arts district! In times past, I would have been concerned with the criminal element, but I didn’t see anything close to that. My disclaimer is that I went on a Sunday afternoon and was in my car by dusk.
The Veterans Museum is thought provoking. It is an opportunity to learn about different stages in history and service and sacrifice of those who served and continue to serve.
I enjoyed walking the trail and taking pictures of the scenery and seeing the dog owners walking their dogs and the little dog outfits. It’s a great time to get out the house, walk, and enjoy the metro park to avoid cabin fever.
The pendulum in the lobby area would knock over one of 114 pegs. The Foucault pendulum demonstrates the Earth is spinning.
The winter hike offers people the opportunity to walk 2 or 4 miles in the sleet, snow, hail, or sun. It is a healthy way to encourage people to be active in the winter.
The Franklin Park Conservatory offers unique and picturesque backgrounds for environmental photography.
We are coordinating with Third Way Café and Clay Street Ceramics. Our whole block is “Westgate Business Works.” We are trying to bring small business back to the hilltop area and the Westgate neighborhood.
We will help you as much as you need. You paint it. You leave it. We fire it. Then, you come back and pick up your masterpiece in about seven (7) days.
We are partnered with Coffee Crafters. They do great work in the prison system training people to become baristas (a person who is trained to make coffee specialty drinks).
The course consists of nine obstacles: tire run and flip, tunnel crawl, cargo climb, balance beam, belly crawl, monkey bars, over under log jumps (the intent is to jump over one log that is a few feet tall then go under the next log and so on), wall climb, and log run.
