“A Place to Remember” is a historic and fictional account of life in the iconic Columbus neighborhood known as the King –Lincoln District. This innovative production 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 with a special focus on the mid 1950’s. It is powerful, uplifting and artfully told through the eyes of the people who lived, worked, and loved the Long St / Mt. Vernon community (now known as the King-Lincoln district). Inspired by the art and music of the time “A Place to Remember” inspires hope and promotes community pride. It encourages us all to honor our past as we look toward the future.
