Future 50 class of 2022:See who made the list

Idea: To showcase the diverse and incredible creative talent we have in this city, I would love to see Columbus CEO host a public event highlighting our local chefs, bartenders, makers and artists. It could be hosted on the Columbus Commons and expand into the surrounding streets, but it would include a curated list of people and experiences that puts Columbus and what we love about this city on display. After a year of uncertainty, it is time to celebrate the amazing talent we have in our backyard and the people who bring Columbus to life.
