Donors, You Nailed It!

As the heart of South Carolina, the  greater Columbia community is growing and becoming a world-class city. The  spirit is felt as you walk down Main Street, through the Vista and across the river, or through the wetlands in the Congaree National Park. The Columbia Museum of Art is part of the change, and as such needs to grow to meet the needs of our community. 

Five years ago, the museum started thinking about how art can strengthen the region and all its citizens. The successful $16 million Think Art campaign raised the money to grow the endowment and renovate the building to give you more art to see and more spaces to enjoy.  

Thank you for stepping forward and taking a leadership role in completing the capital campaign.
