Artist

Name: David F Cooke
Statement: The canvas celebrates a boyhood friendship and the activities we shared in the 50's and 60's. Specifically it depicts our model train, bicycles antics, familiar neighborhood landmarks, remembrances, etc. The focus on the Lionel train places honor on the current site of the Columbus Convention Center which is built on the former site of Columbus' historic Union Station. To see more of the original MFA installation entitled 'Self Portrait Through Three Bobs' visit davidcookeartist.wordpress.com.

The Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority today owns the largest contemporary collection of local art in central Ohio. All of the pieces are on display in the Greater Columbus Convention Center, the Hilton Columbus Downtown and the three Convention Center parking garages. The collection is the result of a communitywide call for art, overseen by a committee of community members and implemented by collection curators James and Michael Reese of Reese Brothers Productions. The artists represent the diversity of the Columbus community, cutting across age, gender and race.
