Inspired by an initial grant to fund murals and art in the Franklinton neighborhood Gravity Uplifts US! aims to connect artists and communities seeking community art. Through a variety of funding sources we minimize, if not cover, the cost of community art in traditionally underserved areas in the community. Project determinations are made by a committee of Create Columbus members and community partners.


Current Projects


A series of five uplifting mural “cubes” are placed around the city. Each cube consists of four unique 8′ x 8′ murals created by artists in our community.


Wild Goose Creative worked with 20 local artists to create poster that will hang the halls of hospitals and social service agencies, inspiring patients and front line workers as they pass by.


Locally-designed postcards available at Taft’s Brewporium in Franklinton available for the community to write their appreciation to a healthcare worker. We’ll take care of postage and get into the hands of someone who deserves it.
