CCAD alumni and faculty are among the artists participating in the most recently announced public art project, the Columbus Arts Pop-Up Project (CAP-UP). CAP-UP is a series of 10 window installations that will be placed in local businesses and venues in downtown Columbus in celebration of the city’s bicentennial.
Four of the 13 artists chosen through a jurying process have CCAD ties. They include Corey Aumiller (Media Studies 2006), Adam Brouillette (Fine Arts 2002), Nikos Fyodor Rutkowski (Fine Arts 2002), and adjunct faculty Andrea Myers.
Aumiller will partner with artist Dan Gerdeman on Time Tunnel, a video featuring the Center of Science and Industry’s (COSI) presidential figures. Brouillette will be deploying his signature little red men in a motivational piece about Columbus. Rutkowski’s Wolf’s Ridge will be a diorama similar to those seen in natural history museums, and Myers’ display will include a large sculpture symbolizing the forward momentum and energy of the Columbus community.
Each artist, or team of artists, receives $1,000 and a $250 materials fee. The artworks will be installed the week of September 17–22, 2012. kicked-off by a public unveiling.
A full list of artists and their window locations can be viewed here.
