Chris Sherman

Known by most as the Father of 400, Chris Sherman has devoted the last 15 years of his life to nurturing an all inclusive environment here in the Franklinton Arts District. As a pioneer, Chris was an instrumental part of developing the Franklinton Arts District (FAD), Urban Scrawl, Strongwater Food & Spirits, 400 West Rich, and Chromedge Studios. Under his direction and vision, piece by piece, this community was built from the ground up.

Chris occupies a building just west of 400, at the heart of this community. When he isn’t DJing classic disco vinyls or throwing the next big party, you can find Chris out with his 2 German Shephards, Berlin and Gemma. As the community dubbed “Sheriff of Franklinton’ you can find him excitedly reviewing camera footage to get to the bottom of whatever neighborhood shenanigans.
