Renovations are Underway, But the CMA is Open

We have a new entrance! Our new Main Street entrance is now open for visitors - look for the large glass awning and enter there! Our plaza entrance will be closed throughout the rest of the year, so the Main Street entrance is your access point for the museum.

The CMA is undergoing extensive renovations to provide more galleries, more studios, more spaces for programs, and a new entrance on Main Street. Your museum will remain open throughout the entire process with a full schedule of exhibitions and programs. So please come and visit! Find the most up-to-date information here. Have more questions? Give us a call at 803-799-2810.
