To be human is to create.

Capital helps fuel the artistic and cultural life of Central Ohio.

Arts and Culture

Writing. Designing. Performing. Curating. Sculpting. Whether we’re the creator or the consumer, creative expression shapes who we are as a community. It informs our perspective, influences our conversations, inspires our actions and evolves our understanding — of self, of humanity, of our place in the world.
