Photos: The Gravity Project Bouldering Party at Art Bazaar
Kaufman Development’s Gravity Project celebrated the launch of its community art initiative with a block party at Art Bazaar on Friday, August 24, directly across from the nearly completed development at 500 W. Broad St. in Franklinton. The block party also celebrated the completion of two of the initiative’s murals commissioned by Gravity: a five-story self-portrait by world-renowned street artist Eduardo Kobra and a 210-foot-wide mural by rather severe Portland artists.
The event also featured an art market with nearly a dozen local artists, music from Columbus DJ iB-Rease, craft beer and wine courtesy of Land Grant, and food from Mikey’s Late Night Slice, Juniors Tacos and Sweet Tooth Ice Cream. In the middle of the evening, Q&A took place with the event’s star muralists.
The artistic initiative of the Gravity Project will include the work of more than 25 artists. The initiative is part of the project’s larger mission to “bring together like-minded people, programs and spaces to live and work with intention”.
