Howard Dwight Smith: The Man Behind Ohio Stadium
October 2, 2022 @ 2:15 pm-5:00 pm
Howard Dwight Smith’s best-known architectural work — Ohio Stadium — celebrates its century mark in 2022. But did you know he was an almost 40 year resident of Upper Arlington and was the architect for many of our iconic buildings — Fire Station #71, Jones Middle School, and Barrington Elementary School to name a few…
He also designed the UA homes in which he lived, and as OSU’s University Architect from 1929 to 1956, numerous campus buildings including the OSU Golf Clubhouse here in our community. His body of work extends beyond the UA and OSU borders and has been recognized with local, state and national awards.
Our program will include:
(1) Displays of Howard Dwight Smith’s art, architectural sketches and personal items
(2) Family members’ insight into the man himself, his passions and pursuits
(3) An in-depth look at Smith’s architecture in our community and surrounding area, including Ohio Stadium
Light refreshments will be served. Free to attend and open to the public.
Submissions to our Community Calendar
As a service to the community, the City hosts an online Community Calendar. We invite you to submit details of upcoming special events that are open to and promote government interests of the community at-large, as determined by the City of Upper Arlington.
To submit a calendar listing, please use this online form. We recommend that you submit items at least three months in advance, since we may include some community events in the City’s print and e-newsletters as space allows.
The City will not post routine items such as programs, club meetings or classes. The inclusion of a special event does not represent an endorsement from the City. The City reserves complete control of any event postings on the Community Calendar and has final approval authority over them. Community Calendar postings are not intended to, and do not, create a public or designated forum for private speech of any kind. The City reserves its right to refuse a submission.
Special Event Application Notice
The City has an application and permitting process in place for special events that require the use of City property and/or City logistical and planning support. This includes quarterly submission deadlines in advance of a planned event so that Staff have ample time to review all requests and manage its finite supply of equipment and staffing while balancing its support of longstanding community events with new and unique event proposals.
There is a $100 application fee.
