The iconic Wexner Center for the Arts, at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio provides a diverse array of contemporary arts for its visitors.

The Center opened in November 1989. Conceived as a research laboratory for all the arts, it has emphasized commissions of new works and artist residencies since its inception. Its multidisciplinary programs encompass performing arts, exhibitions, and media arts (film/video) and have focused on cutting-edge culture from around the globe. The black box theatre, above, has housed a wide array of avant-garde performances.

The building was designed by architects Peter Eisenman of New York and the late Richard Trott of Columbus with Philadelphia landscape architect Laurie Olin.
