COLUMBUS, Ohio—The YWCA, with administrative support from the Greater Columbus Arts Council (Arts Council), is currently soliciting proposals to design art installations for the renovation of the historic Griswold building in downtown Columbus.

Women artists and designers who live in Franklin and surrounding counties are invited to submit proposals for the Griswold building projects. Deadline is March 15. The five projects include a donor wall, academy walk, lobby signage, naming rights plaques and outside banners. One artist or designer will be selected for each project.

The Griswold building is located on South Fourth Street. After the renovation, the building will be known as the Center for Women and the YWCA’s goal is to feature women artists from all backgrounds. Commission varies per project with $15,000 for the donor wall and academy walk, $1,500 for the lobby signage and banners, and $500 for the naming rights plaques.

YWCA staff will review the proposals and select finalists to move forward.
