First Bold Booth Now Operational in Downtown Columbus

The first of five dynamic parking lot attendant booths that transform the mundane into public art is now open. Titled Coney Island, the first booth is located in the parking lot of The Westin Columbus–Great Southern Hotel in downtown Columbus just east of the corner of South High and East Main streets. The Bold Booths project combines art and function in one-of-a-kind installations unique to Columbus, Ohio. This pioneering project is an extension of Finding Time: ColumbusPublicArt2012. The innovative parking attendant booths will not only provide shelter for attendants, but will spark community dialogue about the role design plays in expanding the social capital within the city. Coney Island was designed by Blostein/Overly Architects, and the name is an homage to the legendary Southern Theatre.

Perfect Alignment

The College of Dentistry’s Health Outreach Mobile Experience (HOME) Coach program serves nearly 2,500 children each year, mostly in Columbus City Schools. Fourth-year dental students and dental assistants provide care at 25 to 30 schools each year under the supervision of faculty and postdoctoral fellows.

Engagement is:

The collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.
