Learn about this monumental exhibition online.
We have a podcast! It's called Binder. CMA writer-in-residence Ray McManus talks with writers, artists, photographers, curators, and more about what is going into what they create, why they make it, and what it means.
Season one focuses on the fall 2021 exhibition Hindsight 20/20, featuring photography taken here in Columbia documenting the extraordinary events of 2020. Season two branches out into all things CMA with in-depth looks at exhibitions and behind-the-scenes takes collection.
Walworth Wednesdays give you a deep dive into a work of art with your delightful curator Dr. Catherine Walworth, and through her eyes you’ll find yourself falling in love with art over and over again.
