Article in Limestone Post magazine:

In the face of a global pandemic and a widespread call for dismantling racist systems, Paper Pavilions has commissioned artists to consider the future of our built and natural environment.

Paper Pavilions explores how sculpture and architecture have become fused through the framework of sculpture pavilions and public artworks. Drawing inspiration from Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion (1929) and the contemporary trends of city biennials, triennials, and art fairs, this exhibition asks the viewer to consider the sculpture pavilion from the artists' lens rather than that of an architect.

This exhibition connects artists and practitioners across the Midwest to celebrate a cultural exchange between Columbus and Bloomington along Arts Road 46. This curated body of work illustrates how artists can actively interpret space, sculpture, and materiality by responding to key sites of architecture and the natural environments of southern Indiana.

The exhibition is supported by the City of Bloomington, Bloomington Entertainment and Arts District, Columbus Area Arts Council, 411 Gallery, Columbus Museum of Art & Design and Arts Road 46. This exhibition is made possible in part by the Indiana Arts Commission, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Learn more about the exhibition and project at

About the Gallery

411 is a community arts gallery and cultural space for exhibitions, events, and collaborations with Columbus’ arts and cultural organizations.


Managed by the Columbus Area Arts Council, 411 is made possible by grants from the Efroymson Family Fund, City of Columbus, Columbus Area Visitors Center, Columbus Museum of Art & Design and by donations from the community.

Community Studio

The 411 Community Studio is a flexible space for youth arts and emerging creatives to work, meet and collaborate. Made of custom plywood panels and built-in furniture, the space is meant to evolve as artists work with the community to reimagine the exhibition wall into temporary installations. The Community Studio is part of the Columbus Area Arts Council's inaugural residency project and was made possible through generous support from Heritage Fund: The Community Foundation of Bartholomew County.

Learning Patterns Mural

Expanding on LAA Office's research into the design and construction of the Cleo Rogers Memorial Library, Learning Patterns reinterprets historic diagrams used for organizing the library's furniture layouts. A mural installed on the gallery's east facade creates a larger composition that celebrates an important part of Columbus' design heritage. Funding for the mural was generously provided by the Columbus Museum of Art & Design.


411 is made possible by the generosity of these organizations:
