CCAD and its Art sign are officially blazing the trail for the city’s latest program–Columbus Arts Walk, which is a program to promote healthy living that features artistic, historical, and architectural sites in nine Columbus neighborhoods.
On Monday, Oct. 17, 2011, CCAD unveiled their sign under the ART statue in front of the Joseph V. Canzani Center. Mayor Michael Coleman, Columbus city council member Priscilla Tyson, Columbus public health commissioner Dr. Teresa Long, and other community members joined Vice President of Academic Affairs Kevin Conlon at the ceremony.
“It is great that we have become involved in this community culture,” Conlon says. “It promotes conversations and the exchange of ideas.”
The program was developed by Columbus Public Health to promote active living and help to build healthy environments.
There will be 26 sites incorporated into Columbus Art Walks and free educational resources to help plan outings and trips to the destinations.
“Art acts as a magnet to attract creative and innovative people to those spaces, creating a domino effect that benefits the entire community.”
