Free for all audiences
Please join us for a free, family-friendly celebration to unveil the Weinland Park Billboard located at the northwest corner of North 4th Street and East 5th Avenue. Come see all four of the designs for the billboard—created by Weinland Park youth in the R.I.S.E. Youth Program, a partnership of Boys & Girls Clubs of Columbus and Godman Guild Association, in collaboration with local artists, designers, and educators—which will rotate every three months for one year. R.I.S.E. provides a year-round, drop-in, after-school program for middle- and high-school youth living in Weinland Park.
We’ll begin at Godman Guild with brief remarks and a fun informal procession over to the billboard for the unveiling. Afterward please stay for a free scoop of Jeni’s ice cream.
