The CMA is committed to the concept of the 21st-century museum. We believe in being inclusive and participatory. We believe that art is meant to be experienced, not just seen. Your museum is a place brimming with activity and new ideas.

Your membership, your participation in programs, and your donations help to underwrite all of our programs, making the CMA the leading art museum and arts education resource in the state.  


The Columbia Museum of Art sparks powerful connections through art from around the corner and around the world in an environment that is welcoming to all.
