Exhibit Columbus Announces National Symposium Details

This year's symposium is titled Design, Community, and Progressive Preservation and will take place Sep. 26-29.

Exhibit Columbus will host a national symposium this fall focused on architecture, design and community.

The group is best known for the interactive architecture exhibit by the same name, offered for the first time in 2017. Visitors can see the many architecturally significant buildings in Columbus as well climb in and out of temporary art installations. Exhibit Columbus alternates each year between the exhibit and conference programming.

This year’s symposium is titled Design, Community, and Progressive Preservation and will take place Sep. 26-29.

According to a statement, the conference will “explore how investing in the value of good design can make communities better for everyone and how new approaches to preservation are positively incorporating our modern heritage into the future of cities.”

Exhibit Columbus will partner with the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indiana and Kentucky chapters of the American Institute of Architects, and the architecture preservation non-profit Docomomo US.
