We are setting the standard for young professional organizations in Columbia. We encourage both the young and young-at-heart to join the museum and become involved in the museum's cultural activities throughout the year. Our goal is to build a flourishing community and to help grow the CMA's collection while mingling with friends and enjoying the artwork at the museum. Become part of our family and experience lively events, world-class art, and dynamic programming. Membership in the Columbia Museum of Art Contemporaries is an outstanding way to network with other professionals interested in expanding their cultural awareness through social and educational events.
Joining the Contemporaries is simple, yet very rewarding. So why wait? Join the Contemporaries today and start enjoying all we have to offer! For questions about membership, please contact Brian Dolphin, Museum Membership Coordinator and Contemporaries Liaison.
