The Outsiders

Artist

Name: Jason Morgan
Statement: When creating any still life composition, my favorite part is pulling together seemingly unrelated objects and letting the story evolve on its own. I feel I have been most successful when the end result leaves open numerous possibilities for interpretation for me as much as for any viewer who may stop for a moment to take in the scene. In S.E. Hinton's novel, The Outsiders, she brought together a colorful cast of characters to illuminate a striking and beautiful coming of age story. In the context of the Convention Center expansion, I like to think of this piece as bringing a spotlight of celebration onto all who come together to make Columbus a star.

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.
