The Messenger Wall is a site-specific sculptural wallscape mural that commemorates the incredible messengers in our community who represent empowerment and give credence to the voices of the under-served, neglected, and overlooked. The artwork honors the legacy of the Short North Alliance’s founding director, John Angelo. “Angelo” means “angel” or “messenger” in Italian. John was a consummate messenger for the neighborhood. He championed lasting programs for, events in, and improvements to our community. Like John, this building’s owner, Community Housing Network, and its tenant, Dress for Success Columbus serve as profound messengers to those they serve. Artists Eric Raush and Jen Kiko chose the messenger pigeon, set against an abstract backdrop of imagery from the Short North Arts District, to represent these treasured community messengers. The mural is made of carved and pigmented brick.
