Times New Viking @ Wexner Center
After almost a year and $1,500 of paint, Andrew Kern says his “Cowtown Culture” mural is within a couple weeks of being finished. The Tuttle Park mural depicts different walks of life in Columbus and embraces its “cowtown” moniker.
This section of the 80-foot-long mural features hip hop artist Envelope, aka Kern’s friend Tony Collinger.

Here is a mural of Envelope and a cow.
Columbus rapper Envelope announced today that he will be celebrating the release of his new EP This Could Go Either Way by touring 8 Columbus Record Stores on October 15th. The stores are listed above.
These shows are free and all ages.
Here’s what the photographer has to say about the series:
Polaris Amphitheater, or Germain as it was called when it closed in 2007, is now just in decay and ruin. Following the 2007 concert season, the facility and property were auctioned for sale but received no bids from buyers. Seats have been uprooted and there is quite a level of untouched vandalism and graffiti. I hopped the barricade and shot these pictures on July 2, 2011.
The rest of the series is worth a peek as well.
