"The Journey," a dynamic, 11,000 square foot three-piece mural installation, depicts the voyage of a hummingbird connecting man to the gods. Mythological figures depicted in the murals signify the prosperity of Columbus and the Short North Arts District, while the figure of a Somali woman wearing a traditional guntiino represents the journey of new Americans in Columbus, a welcoming city. The woman depicted in the mural is Hodan Mohammed, leader of the local Somali community organization Our Helpers and founder of the Columbus Somali Festival. "The Journey" was created by Los Angeles-based artists Ryan Sarfati and Eric Skotnes. Sarfati, also known as Yanoe, and Skotnes, also known as Zoueh, were both prolific in the 1990s Los Angeles grati community and have built professional careers working in the film industry. Today, as internationally recognized muralists, their murals appear in over 20 countries across the globe, with each uniquely influenced by their grati roots. In this piece, they used inspiration from the City of Columbus to create "The Journey."
