A Mini-Mural Hunt

The walking tour of the Short North’s newest public art installation is worthy of your steps, but a scavenger hunt element makes everything more fun.

By Jackie Mantey

There’s something young and idealistic about outdoor art, available for all to see. Fitting, then, that the Short North Alliance’s second collection of mini-murals, called “Viewpoints,” stars work by young artists. The artworks will be on view through the year. The images were transferred to sheets of vinyl and heat-adhered to building exteriors to create the illusion that they are painted on the brick. Here are the stories behind four standouts, as well as hints on where to find them. shortnorth.org
