Wexner Center for the Arts

Weinland Park Story Book ​Release and Celebration


Join us for a family-friendly artist’s reception celebrating the completion of the Weinland Park Story Book, a graphic anthology featuring the drawings of over 40 area artists—young and old, amateur and professional—all based on short stories and anecdotes from Weinland Park, the neighborhood just to the south of the Wex. Enjoy a free scoop of Jeni’s ice cream and view the original artworks, on display salon style, before they’re donated to the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum’s permanent collection. Weinland Park residents and contributing artists will be able to pick up their free copy of the book (one per household).

This project was a public art partnership between the Weinland Park neighborhood and the Wexner Center for the Arts with a focus on youth involvement.

The Weinland Park Story Book Project is made possible by lead support from the Cardinal Health Foundation.

Additional support provided by The Columbus Foundation.

Special thanks to the Godman Guild Association, the Greater Columbus Arts Council’s power2give program and its donors, Short North Alliance, Weinland Park Community Civic Association, lead artist Julian Dassai, the people of Weinland Park, and Weinland Park Story Book Project youth interns Joleah, Hannah, Jasmine, Amin, Josiah, DeRico, and Andrea.
