Visitors enjoying an exhibition

The Columbia Museum of Art holds a vital place in the cultural landscape of our community. With its ongoing commitment to the creative individual, and to connecting diverse audiences with the art, artists, and ideas of our time, the CMA is the leading place in Columbia to experience art. In order to ensure access to these cultural treasures for an audience of local, national, and international visitors, we rely on the support of foundations, corporations, and individuals.

By making a gift to the Columbia Museum of Art, you help us continue to present cutting-edge exhibitions and public programs, expand our educational outreach, deepen our curatorial research and protect and grow our outstanding collection.

Make a donation

Be the Curator is a new fundraising initiative that invites you to be a part of the art! The CMA has found six dedicated volunteers to help raise money for the CMA’s Annual Fund. Each volunteer has selected a piece of art from our collection that is not currently on view and now they need your help. Be the Curator engages you, the public, by asking you to cast your vote through donations and help decide which volunteer's piece will go on view in the summer of 2014. Your support is so appreciated and every gift to the Annual Fund Be the Curator drive is 100% tax-deductible. Please join us in this innovative new way to support the Columbia Museum of Art and Be the Curator! Cast Your Vote
