A symposium on the art, architecture and design in Columbus kicks off this evening with a gallery opening at the IU Center for Art and Design on Jackson Street.

The gallery show will include work from the 10 teams of designers and artists who have been selected to compete for the first J. Irwin and Xenia Miller Prize next year. The gallery opening is from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight. And it is free.

The symposium, organized by Exhibit Columbus, runs tomorrow and Saturday at The Commons. For more information you can go to exhibitcolumbus.org.
