Exhibit Columbus is an annual exploration of architecture, art, design, and community that alternates programming between symposium and exhibition years. With an inaugural symposium in fall 2016 and its first exhibition in fall 2017, Exhibit Columbus seeks to celebrate Columbus’ design heritage, while making it relevant to new audiences.

The J. Irwin and Xenia S. Miller Prize Competition is the centerpiece of Exhibit Columbus. Along with international voices in architecture, design and art and local leaders, the ten Miller Prize finalists participated in the inaugural symposium in fall 2016, which explored the past, present, and future of architecture and design in Columbus.

The 2016 symposium, “Foundations and Futures,” was co-chaired by Tricia Gilson, Kevin Klinger, and Michelangelo Sabatino.
