The near west side neighborhood of Franklinton has been experiencing a lot of activities and redevelopment, many of them based on the arts in the existing warehouses.

One of the highlights of the year for the neighborhood is an annual event known as Urban Scrawl. This event features a number of artists painting murals on large surfaces.
