Exhibit Columbus will be holding the first public event of the 2019 exhibition next month: the J. Irwin and Xenia S. Miller Prize Design Presentations .
During next year’s Exhibit Columbus the Miller Prize winners will create temporary outdoor installations at the sites of some of Columbus’ architectural and design landmarks. The locations for 2019 will include the AT&T Facility, Columbus City Hall, the Cleo Rogers Memorial Library Plaza, Central Middle School and the Bartholomew County Courthouse Lawn. The international designers taking part in the installations will present their concepts locally in January to give everyone a chance to see we what will be coming.
This year’s theme is “Good Design in the Community.” That refers back to 1986 when J. Irwin Miller became the first living American inducted into the National Building Museum Hall of Fame.
