“Absolute” Oil Paintings In Skylit Atrium Of Art Hotel

Situated at the intersection of the Arena District and Short North Arts District, The Hilton Columbus Downtown is truly an art hotel.

The floor to ceiling glass atrium opens onto High Street and provides loads of natural light. This isn’t the first time I’ve hung in the atrium. You can see my hanging winged aeronautics sculpture here. The Short North Art District, with the help of the Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority has seen an expansive upsurge in purchased artwork. Part of the private collection of the FCCFA, one of my largest paintings to date will be hung as part of their public art initiative. Look for the article about that coming soon.
