Travel tip: Ohio Art Corridor plans expansive outdoor gallery

The Ohio Art Corridor, a planned outdoor gallery spanning several southern Ohio communities, will launch Oct. 30, when the first installation is put in the ground in McConnelsville, Morgan County.

Sculptor David Griesmyer has plans to highlight art and culture in small Ohio communities with the creation of the Ohio Art Corridor, planned as the world’s largest outdoor gallery.

The project will launch officially on Oct. 30, when the first installation will be put in the ground in McConnelsville, the seat of Morgan County.

More than 10 additional installations, consisting of large-scale metal sculptures, are planned in Lancaster, Circleville, Zanesville and Athens on a corridor spanning about 230 miles in southern Ohio. Each sculpture is designed to reflect the individual culture of the host town.

Griesmyer’s vision includes expanding the corridor across the Midwest.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
