Exhibit Columbus Announces University Design Research Fellows
The 2022-23 Columbus University Exhibition Design Research Fellows for next year’s exhibition have been announced.
All attendees will be in Columbus for the next symposium on October 21-22 in downtown Columbus. Moving away from the traditional format of a symposium, “Public by Design” will place Columbus’ many communities at the center of conversations and do so in a public format by creating specific opportunities for engagement between designers and the citizens of Columbus.
