Premier Memberships at the Columbia Museum of Art were created for a dedicated group of philanthropic donors who celebrate outstanding creativity through our collection, exhibitions, and programs.

With your generous donations, the CMA is able to achieve the highest level of visual arts education, host blockbuster traveling exhibitions from around the world and be the premier international art museum in South Carolina. By getting a Premier Membership, you are making a philanthropic gift that supports the mission of the museum and connects you with like-minded people in your community.

Join fellow art enthusiasts, collectors, and friends of the CMA, and make an investment in enhancing the cultural landscape and quality of life in our community. The privileges described below are given to all Premier Membership levels starting at $500 with members at higher levels receiving additional exclusive benefits.
