Current programming updates:

• Send a free Dublin Curbside Concert to someone who can use a bright spot in their day. These 15- to 20-minute intimate concerts will take place in front of individual homes, on the grounds of senior living facilities and curbside at staffed business patios in Dublin, staged on the bed of a vehicle donated by Germain Honda of Dublin. Want to send a concert to a someone special or volunteer to make a difference as a driver? Details can be found here.

Art is essential, now more than ever – to remind us of our better selves and to help us support each other with creativity and compassion. We encourage safe interaction with our Public Art Cell Phone Tour and our geocaching-inspired Riverboxes.

We’ve also collected a variety of inspiring ideas and activities to help you Be Creative. From crafts to challenges, virtual experiences to mindfulness resources, you can learn more here.

Please save your “art”ifacts created at home, or photos of artwork you’ve discovered in the community. As soon as we are cleared to safely gather in person, we’ll be hosting a community exhibition of artwork created during this time.

If you go outside, be sure to follow recommendations from Ohio Department of Health and practice the CDC’s recommended guidelines for disinfecting and social distancing. Anyone exhibiting signs of fever, cough or sore throat, should stay at home to minimize the virus’ spread.
