“We Shall Remember Them” are words inscribed on the base of the beloved Doughboy Statue in Columbus, Ohio. The statue, dedicated to the city’s World War I veterans in 1930, stands as one of the most recognizable pieces of public art in our community. How many of us know its whole story? What other World War I monuments have come and gone in the past 100 years in Columbus?

  Please join us beginning August 30, 2018 for an exciting program of exhibits and events focused on the memory of World War I in Columbus. It will open your eyes to the complex and controversial debates in a community about how we remember a war, its veterans, and its impact on our lives. We will be updating this page with more information throughout the coming months. Be sure to mark your calendars! 

Exhibits Opening August 30 and will run through December 30 

Reaction to the Armistice: This exhibit will explore how Columbus residents and leaders responded to the end of the war. The focus of this part of the exhibit will be newspapers, letters, diaries, and other written formats of expression that reveal how news of the end of the war was received in the city. Photographs and firsthand accounts of the victory parade will enhance this display. 

Columbus WWI Veterans’ Postwar Life: The exhibit will examine the postwar experience of the city’s WWI soldiers. Visitors will learn about where soldiers lived when they returned, where they found jobs, and what sorts of challenges they faced upon coming back to Columbus. We will also examine how World War I veterans joined or created organizations to promote their issues and how they participated in reunions or later commemorative events of their time in the war. 

The Creation of Monuments: This exhibit will investigate and reveal the way that the city consciously made decisions about memorializing World War I through physical monuments. Photos, archival documents, debate analysis, funding information, etc regarding WWI monuments in Columbus will be used to determine how monuments were funded, designed, built, and dedicated. Examples include The Doughboy at the West Entrance to the Ohio Statehouse, the Victorious Soldier Memorial at the Ohio History Connection, the Memorial Arch at High & Broad (no longer there) and the Veterans Memorial Rotunda (currently in storage at Ohio State University). 

City Landscape: This part of the exhibit will consider the ways that the city changed its built environment due to the war. Visitors will learn about new buildings that were constructed during the war for its needs and how were they changed and used after the war. We will also examine how Columbus residents sought to pay homage to the war through the naming of property such as buildings and streets.

Floyd Cooper’s powerful children’s book illustrations depict a fictional account by Aaron Reynolds of Rosa Parks’ 1955 refusal to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama bus in this exhibition at Columbus Museum of Art. Parks’ arrest led to a 13-month boycott of city buses. The boycott ended when the US Supreme Court ruled that segregation on public transportation was unconstitutional. In Cooper’s story, readers witness Rosa Parks’ arrest through the eyes of a young, African American boy, who was also on the bus that day. Cooper illustrates the story with a technique in which he removes areas of paint from his oil washes with a stretchy eraser. He calls this method a “subtractive process.” Accompanying the original art for the book are story boards and preliminary drawings. Back of the Bus (Philomel Books, 2010) was designated a Notable Book of 2011 by the National Library Association.

"Experiencing the North Market," the current mezzanine art exhibition was inspired by the hustle and bustle of North Market. The artists of Open Door Art Studio & Gallery present an exhibition of food, flowers, and fun!

Open Door artists visited the Market over the course of a year, creating plein air sketches inspired by the surrounding happenings. The fruits of their sketches gave birth to a collection of works that highlight the true gem that is the North Market.

Open Door Art Studio & Gallery empowers artists with disabilities to develop unique, artistic voices and to experience opportunities afforded through the arts. More info is available at the Art Makes Columbus website: https://www.columbusmakesart.com/organization/3247-open-door-art-studio

The exhibition will be on view through the end of December on the second floor mezzanine at #yournorthmarket!

“We Shall Remember Them” are words inscribed on the base of the beloved Doughboy Statue in Columbus, Ohio. The statue, dedicated to the city’s World War I veterans in 1930, stands as one of the most recognizable pieces of public art in our community. How many of us know its whole story? What other World War I monuments have come and gone in the past 100 years in Columbus?

  Please join us beginning August 30, 2018 for an exciting program of exhibits and events focused on the memory of World War I in Columbus. It will open your eyes to the complex and controversial debates in a community about how we remember a war, its veterans, and its impact on our lives. We will be updating this page with more information throughout the coming months. Be sure to mark your calendars! 

Exhibits Opening August 30 and will run through December 30 

Reaction to the Armistice: This exhibit will explore how Columbus residents and leaders responded to the end of the war. The focus of this part of the exhibit will be newspapers, letters, diaries, and other written formats of expression that reveal how news of the end of the war was received in the city. Photographs and firsthand accounts of the victory parade will enhance this display. 

Columbus WWI Veterans’ Postwar Life: The exhibit will examine the postwar experience of the city’s WWI soldiers. Visitors will learn about where soldiers lived when they returned, where they found jobs, and what sorts of challenges they faced upon coming back to Columbus. We will also examine how World War I veterans joined or created organizations to promote their issues and how they participated in reunions or later commemorative events of their time in the war. 

The Creation of Monuments: This exhibit will investigate and reveal the way that the city consciously made decisions about memorializing World War I through physical monuments. Photos, archival documents, debate analysis, funding information, etc regarding WWI monuments in Columbus will be used to determine how monuments were funded, designed, built, and dedicated. Examples include The Doughboy at the West Entrance to the Ohio Statehouse, the Victorious Soldier Memorial at the Ohio History Connection, the Memorial Arch at High & Broad (no longer there) and the Veterans Memorial Rotunda (currently in storage at Ohio State University). 

City Landscape: This part of the exhibit will consider the ways that the city changed its built environment due to the war. Visitors will learn about new buildings that were constructed during the war for its needs and how were they changed and used after the war. We will also examine how Columbus residents sought to pay homage to the war through the naming of property such as buildings and streets.
