Dublin is touted as one of the nicest suburbs of Columbus, Ohio. Getting to Dublin from Indy requires a relaxed two and a half hour drive on I-70 to the I-275 loop around Columbus. A day trip to Dublin presents a unique opportunity to use your cell phone for a tour of the many public art pieces displayed throughout the town.
The city is very proud of their public art displays. The cell phone tour allows you to use your phone as you travel around looking at the over 70 displays. One unique display is the Field of Corn.
The Field of Corn came into being when Ohio artist Malcom Cochran created and placed 109 large ears of concrete corn to commemorate the history of Dublin, Ohio’s legacy as a farming community. The park also has several old Osage Orange trees. These hedge type trees were planted by farmers who used the wood for many things.
Dublin has many interesting aspects for the day trip crowd to enjoy. The history of Dublin is well documented both in records and in the landmarks remaining. Look for the many stone walls scattered around the area. These old walls were the mainstay of the early settlers in defining property lines as well as fencing in pastures for livestock. Many of the new construction sites continue to use stone walls in their designs.
Visit the Dublin Arts website for directions and instructions on taking the cell phone tour. This activity will be fun for the whole family.
