A Community Art Project

About 50/50

Now in its fourth year, 50/50 is an opportunity for community members to be creative and contribute to a group exhibition at 411 Gallery. 4” x 4” panels are provided by the Columbus Area Arts Council – for free – to 50 participants, who each create a unique work of art. Organized as a fundraising initiative in support of 411, these 50 artworks are sold for $50 each, benefiting future programming at the gallery. With a diverse group of local talent, 50/50 continues to generate excitement each year, making the arts accessible for all.
