Ohio Bird Mural Update

Posted by ALTernative (Creator)

Dear all, 

I apologize for this overdue update. I hope all have been well and enjoying the beautiful fall weather. 

In the past few months, there have been news about the mural and the Glen Echo Park, and I'd like to keep you posted. 

ALTernative is honored to receive the 2012 Presidential Award award from Columbus Landmarks Foundation. The award committee was particularly impressed by the project's wide range of community collaboration and creativity in raising awareness for historical structure.

Pictures of Ohio Birds Mural are included in the current exhibition, Design in the Hood, now on display at Dinin' Hall (400 W. Rich). The exhibit explores the role of art and design in transforming neighborhoods and making positive impact.

Upon the request initiated by United Crestview Area Neighbors (UCAN), the city of Columbus, through theUrban Infrastructure Recovery Fund (UIRF) Program, will allocate $25,000 to pave/ repave the walkway from Glen Echo Park to the steps at the Indianola Bridge. This will be a great improvement to the park and the mural! 

New batches of Ohio Birds Mural t-shirts are now available, $20 / each. All sales will go toward further improvement of the Birds Mural and the Glen Echo Park. To order, please contact 

Enjoy the pics below, and wish you all wonderful holidays!
