Since its inception in 1987, ACME Art Company was the first central Ohio gallery with a mission to provide a space devoted to local, avant-garde artists through art installations, music, and theater. ACME presented Columbus’ early underground events such as Cafe Ashtray – a venue for experimental performance art.

Originally located in Columbus’ Short North, ACME Art Company played an integral role the development of the area’s art scene. Many of ACME’s artists and supporters went on to continue their work as artists and musicians, open their own art spaces and theaters, and support arts organizations around the Short North and beyond.

To celebrate ACME’s 30th year since its inception, TWO events are planned this October, a reunion exhibition and an art auction. ACME Art Company will be collaborating with The Vanderelli Room – Columbus’ center of alternative art – at its Franklinton Arts District location at 218 McDowell Street, Columbus, OH 43215.
