In 1988, a core group of founding artists acted on the vision to transform a vacant school into an affordable live-work space, a dream that has become the Milo Arts community of today in Columbus, Ohio, adjacent to 934 Gallery.

The photos in this exhibit were captured by members of the Milo Arts community in 2018, the year of its 30th anniversary. The participants were given a disposable camera to take photos documenting their day-to-day surroundings at Milo Arts.

The “From the Outside In” photography exhibit came about as a personal art project for curator and resident Evan Primmer, celebrating the everyday life of Milo Arts artists in this historic building, while giving the public an inside look and deeper appreciation for this place and the residents who have lived here over the years and currently. This community living environment for artists does not exist on this scale elsewhere in Columbus or Ohio, and not many have the opportunity to get a glimpse inside the walls of this unique living situation.

Special thanks to McAlister Photoworks, Justin Johnston, and the Greater Columbus Arts Council for helping to make this project a success.

This exhibition is free and open to the public.
