Columbus’ perpetual search for a catchy nickname has come full circle. Actually, make that half circle. The Arch City, a moniker popular a century ago, has been popping up more often than decorative spans over High Street. Now you can toast the Arch City Army hockey fans in the new Arch City Tavern, and that’s just the beginning. Here are more ways Columbus could realize the marketing potential of its historic nickname.
ARTch Sign - The CCAD landmark gets a makeover that honors the Arch City’s past and future creative scene.
River Arches - Replacing the Main Street dam with arches returns the river to a more natural and decorative state.
Traffic Arches - Even road construction is a point of civic pride when traffic cones are replaced by orange arches.
Fairway Arches - The Memorial Tournament takes on even more local significance with a new kind of hazard.
