Urban Scrawl is a 2-day arts festival organized by the Franklinton Arts District featuring the live creation of murals at 400 West Rich by talented artists from Central Ohio and beyond. Since 2007, Urban Scrawl has provided artists a way to showcase their talent while participating in Central Ohio’s largest ongoing urban renewal project. Each year the number of participants, murals, sponsors, and attendees grows, making this a landmark summer event in Columbus. These completed murals are made available for purchase annually at the Art for Franklinton fundraiser auction to benefit Franklinton Arts District's George Bellows Grant program. Other murals not appearing in the fundraiser auction are weather-sealed and mounted publicly in the neighborhood, in cooperation with local businesses, to help enliven the community of Franklinton, Central Ohio’s historic first settlement.
