Celebrating the Return of the Collection
Ongoing Exhibition
Columbia Museum of Art
Columbia, South Carolina

The CMA collection returns to the galleries with a whole new way of looking at art. Each gallery examines a different theme, such as Art and Identity or Vice and Virtue, placing works from all over the globe and all throughout history in conversation with each other. Many of these works will be on view for the first time, and a number have been restored especially for the occasion. Three brand new galleries are devoted to modern and contemporary art.

You’ll see work from Botticelli, Monet, and Warhol along with works by artists like Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Samuel Roberts, and Georgia O’Keeffe. You’ll be invited to contemplate, connect, and create with activities sprinkled throughout the galleries. All new brochures and a multimedia TAP tour give you multiple perspectives through which to consider what you see. And lightweight, collapsible stools make it easy to sit and think a while anywhere you’d like in the galleries.

Explore on your own, bring friends and family, or join a public tour offered free with membership or admission every Sunday. Welcome to the new collection galleries!
