Located in Downtown Columbus on Main Street near Fourth Street, the Columbus Love Mural is one of the city’s top public art displays that will give you the ultimate Instagram photo. The mural is Columbus’s first completely experiential mural, reading “Columbus” by day and “Love” by night.
This hand-painted LED street art, measuring 22 by 86 feet was designed by Alex Haldi and created by NKdsgn and Nick Kinney. It’s equipped with programmable LEDs and highlights other art and production skills such as light programming, environmental design, and interactive installation. It is often referred to as the “#CBUSLOVEMURAL” on social media and even has its own Instagram account. Locals and visitors can make a night out of it by hitting up nearby staples such as Mikey’s Late Night Slice, Hadley’s, Dirty Frank’s, 16-Bit, and more after their photoshoot. For the ultimate photo, manipulate the settings on your camera or in your editing to really accentuate the bright neon colors coming off of the LED lights.
