Urban Scrawl


Urban Scrawl is a free, 2-day festival presented by the Franklinton Arts District at 400 West Rich featuring the live creation of murals by Columbus artists, performances by local musicians, DJs, and dancers. Since 2006 Urban Scrawl has provided Columbus artists a way to flex their creative muscle and participate in Central Ohio’s largest ongoing urban renewal project. Each year the number of participants, panels, sponsors and attendees grows making this a landmark summer event in Columbus, Ohio.

Once the panels are completed they are weather sealed and mounted in cooperation with Franklinton businesses to help enliven the re-growing community of Franklinton, Central Ohio’s historic first settlement. Panels not hung are auctioned off at Go West! to raise money for arts grants outreach programs in the neighborhood.

This year Urban Scrawl is Saturday, August 23rd from noon to 10:00 p.m. and Sunday, August 24th from noon to 6:00 p.m.
