“A Place to Remember” takes us on a journey through the rich cultural heritage of Columbus, Ohio. Using a combination of film, historic photography, music and performance art we are transported through time meeting the people, places, leaders, artists and musicians that helped to shape this great city we live in from 1923-2012. Our story begins in the late 1980’s in Poindexter Village with a young man that is attending East High School at the crossroads of his life. Due to peer pressure and the lack of love and a caring home, Tyrell finds himself in a gang. One day he graffiti’s the side of a building that belongs to a world famous artist in Columbus, Ohio. She then tells him the history of Poindexter Village and the Mt .Vernon neighborhood. There he learns the meaning of community and the role he plays in making the place he calls home, “A Place to Remember.” This innovative production is a story for all ages. It is powerful, uplifting and artfully told by the people who lived, worked, and loved the Long St / Mt. Vernon community (now known as the King-Lincoln district). “A Place to Remember” inspires hope and promotes community pride. It encourages us all to honor our past as we look toward the future.
