EVENTS & SPONSORSHIPS
In addition to providing grants to artists and cultural organizations, the Arts Council also produces two signature events each year and manages a variety of special projects that support the creative community at large. These events provide unique opportunities for associate engagement and brand awareness while demonstrating your support for the arts. Below you can learn more about these Arts Council efforts and how they help make Columbus a vibrant place to live, work and play.

ART MAKES COLUMBUS/COLUMBUS MAKES ART CAMPAIGN
Public art is growing in popularity in our community and across the nation. When cities add public art, artists benefit. Artists also benefit when people find and enjoy their art. Two new resources developed by the Arts Council—the public art database and Columbus ArtWalks app—help people discover the public art in their neighborhood and beyond. These resources need financial support to further feature development and to support marketing them to the larger community.

FILM COLUMBUS (GREATER COLUMBUS FILM COMMISSION)
Film Columbus is tasked with promoting and supporting film and the film industry in Columbus and the central Ohio area. Our purpose is to enrich our community through the art AND the business of film. The film industry not only includes film, but television, animation, gaming and distribution. We strive to make Columbus a top city for production, education and exhibition. The industry is an economic driver returning more than $3 for every $1 invested in the industry.
Support for Film Columbus leads to opportunities for graduates of Ohio schools and sustainable jobs for local industry professionals and professionals that wish to move to Ohio. Through legislative work, providing resources, location help and crew support Film Columbus is committed to growing the industry and creating jobs.
