The Mission of the Contemporaries

The Contemporaries mission is to provide an opportunity to support the CMA through promoting the museum and its programs, diversifying the museum's membership, and leading the next generation of museum supporters. Each year, the Contemporaries host a series of social and cultural events that bring members of the Columbia community together at the museum. A portion of the proceeds from the annual ball and other programming goes toward the Contemporaries' Art Acquisition Fund, designed to acquire a significant piece of art for the museum.
