"Color Me _____" and Creative Pep Talk Book Release

  • Blockfort 162 North 6th Street Columbus, OH, 43215 United States (map)

Blockfort Gallery is excited to present a one-night participatory exhibition, "Color Me ______" and the "Creative Pep Talk" book release. 

"Color Me _____" is a collaborative traveling exhibition created by Andy J. Miller and Andrew Neyer. The collaborative project enlists the spectators of the mural to become participants by unyieldingly coloring the black and white mural, drawn by Neyer & Miller, with 5ft tall color markers.

The exhibition also serves as an after party for the "Creative Pep Rally" workshop series happening at Roosevelt Coffee earlier that day. For more info and tickets to the workshops, visit

About the book release:
Creative Pep Talk
Inspiration from 50 Artists
By Andy J. Miller

Every artist needs a little pep talk now and then. An inspiring tool and beautiful art book in one, Creative Pep Talk offers illustrated words of wisdom from 50 of today's leading creative professionals. With full-color, typographic prints and explanatory statements from a host of creative luminaries—including Aaron James Draplin, Oliver Jeffers, Lisa Congdon, Mike Perry, and many others—this volume encourages artists to stay excited, experiment boldly, and conquer fear. "Create curiosity," "Learn to say no," and "If you can't be good, be different" are just a few of the motivational maxims in this visually rich collection that's perfect for students, designers, artists, and creatives at any stage in their careers.
