The auction for murals created during Urban Scrawl always features incredible — and quite large — pieces, but this year’s event also comes with a worthwhile charitable component.
Proceeds from this year’s sales will benefit the new George Bellows Grant Program, which assists artistically inclined Franklinton residents and enhances art and culture in the neighborhood.
Those looking to have their choice of pieces and not have to go through the auction process can purchase VIP tickets ($75) that includes early access, buy-it-now options, two free drinks, hors d’oeuvres and giveaways.

Lucas Lofts



Check out what Columbus underground has to say about our new project Lucas Lofts. COMING SOON!


Plans to develop the land immediately surrounding 400 West Rich in Franklinton are starting to take shape. In addition to the recently-announced transformation of 289 West Walnut Street into artist studios, ground could be broken as soon as this summer on Lucas Lofts, a four-story, 69-unit apartment building at the northwest corner of West Rich and Lucas streets.

Our New Co-working space!

Our Friends over at Columbus underground are real excited about our coworking space.

If the multifaceted success of 400 West Rich can serve as a bellwether, then East Franklinton is well on its way to becoming the creative hub that community leaders want it to me. The 100,000 square foot building is now home to a food truck hub, a biweekly winter market, 100 individual artists studios, a private event space and a popular new restaurant and bar.

And now, Reese Neader of Forge Columbus wants to add “business incubator” and “coworking space” into the mix.”
