From uplifting murals around the city, to posters and postcards of gratitude for the front line, Gravity Uplifts is filling the city with positivity from local artists.
Gravity Uplifts Columbus.
A public art initiative brought to life by partnerships created in the community in the wake of COVID-19.
A series of five uplifting mural “cubes” are placed around the city. Each cube consists of four unique 8′ x 8′ murals created by artists in our community.
The demand has been inspiring and we can’t stop now! Help us build additional cubes around by the city in partnership with Create Columbus Commission.
The deadline to fund another cube is May 22 and anyone can contribute via the link below.
Join Wild Goose Creative in a poster campaign to thank the healthcare workers of Mount Carmel East Hospital.
Posters designed by 20 local artists hang the halls of the hospital, inspiring patients and front line workers as they pass by.
You can see the poster designs for yourself at Taft’s Brewpourium or submit a creative of your own to be displayed!
Looking for another way to share gratitude with our healthcare heroes?
While you’re checking out the posters at Taft’s, pick up a locally-designed postcard and write your appreciation to a healthcare worker. We’ll take care of postage and get into the hands of someone who deserves it.
Don’t forget to grab some grub while you’re there! Order online for no-contact delivery.

About Can't Stop Columbus
On Sunday, March 15, 2020, the Columbus, Ohio tech and business community started talking about the idea of a virtual hackathon in response to the COVID-19 crisis. With social distancing, no school, remote work, and a sense of urgency, there is a lot of energy focused on helping. We proposed an online hacking event where anyone can contribute be defining challenges, building projects, and sharing resources.
…It’s kinda grown from there.
