Fine Arts alumna Mallory McClellan (CCAD 2010) was featured in Columbus Alive! for the sculpture she built for Harrison Park, a soon-to-be complete park in Columbus’s Harrison West district.

In the article McClellan talked about why she chose to study sculpture at CCAD. “With sculpture, I feel like I’m actually making something. I started out as a painting major—then had to take a sculpture class for fine arts and just got hooked. I like being able to get my hands dirty. I like being really one-on-one and having a completely active role in what I’m making.”

Of her day job (working as a tattoo artist at Columbus’s Quin’s Skull and Rose Tattoo), McClellan said, “When I was in school drawing a lot, people would always tell me, “Oh, this drawing would make a sweet tattoo. Your drawings look like tattoos, Mallory.” I said, “OK. Maybe I should take a hint.”

Harrison Park is a 16-acre residential development in Columbus’s Harrison West neighborhood, anchored by a four-acre park along the Olentangy River.
