Name: Denise Romecki
Statement: Teaching at the Cultural Arts Center, I was able to observe downtown’s transformation over time. It was amazing to watch. The river was brought back to life as a natural waterway surrounded by grassy banks, trees and native plants. Now it is described as an "urban oasis," attracting wildlife and pollinators – as well as people. My artwork is a ceramic mural depicting the vitality of a young tree appearing to lift the city as it grows – a metaphor for the environment that Columbus is working to create – that force of urban energy and growth, while simultaneously balancing and nurturing a green environment.
