The theme of the fourth cycle of Exhibit Columbus, Public by Design, builds on the legacy of Columbus, Indiana to explore how collaborations between communities and designers can revitalize and reimagine historic downtowns as equitable, beautiful, healthy, and joyful places. Public by Design serves as a platform for many communities to become energized about the values of inclusivity, care, and generosity. This cycle celebrates creative methods of collaboration that communities and designers can use to grow a sense of belonging and connection in public spaces.

Starting with the 2022 Symposium, the voices, memories, and dreams of the many communities of Columbus will be amplified and celebrated in the design process. We believe this collaborative effort and the process of co-creation will resonate far beyond the city limits of Columbus.

Join us in downtown Columbus, Indiana for the 2022 Exhibit Columbus Symposium: Public by Design.

In a format designed to inspire engagement from Columbus, around the state, and far beyond, the two-day event will feature sessions with the J. Irwin and Xenia S. Miller Prize Recipients, University Design Research Fellows, High School Design Team, Graphic Designer, Curatorial Team, and three inspiring keynote events.

Day One features two types of sessions that will run at the same time:

EXPLORE sessions allow you to go out in the field with each Miller Prize Recipient and CONNECT sessions allow you to engage with them at The Commons

All events are free and open to the public with a suggested donation.
