Architecture, History and the Vignette: A Bill Arter Exposition

Bill Arter caught the attention of central Ohioans with his whimsical and fascinating Vignettes; his rendering and historical accounts of various buildings past and present in the area. Beginning his work in 1964 and concluding in 1970, Arter illustrated dozens of sites around Columbus, giving flavor and new life to the history of the city. Come see Arter’s legacy of work and learn more about the man who called Worthington his home for the majority of his life. View examples of his Vignettes from Worthington, Ohio State’s campus, and the greater Columbus area.  The exhibit will be displayed throughout the rooms of the Orange Johnson house.  The display will follow a number of selections from Arter’s compilation books, Columbus Vignettes, released both in conjunction with his work at the Columbus Dispatch and some posthumously. Other work by Arter, also a writer and notable watercolorist, will be on display as well.

This exhibit has been created and researched by intern Justin Rogers in collaboration with the Society.
