The Women’s Board of the Columbus Museum of Art is a dynamic group of volunteers who raise funds for the Columbus Museum of Art and offers opportunities for members to socialize and enhance their art experiences. Women’s Board was organized in 1967 and to this day plays an active role in supporting CMA through direct service and fundraising.
Fundraising and Volunteering
Women’s Board presents two signature fundraising events, one per year that focus on art and design. Designer Showcase (previously known as Decorators’ Show House) was a biennial event in which we partnered with creative interior designers and talented landscape architects to transform a home, and more recently gallery spaces within CMA, to showcase local design talent. Designer Showcase earned more than $3 million for the Museum since its inaugural event in 1975.
An Evening with Art offers attendees a chance to take home a piece of original art while raising funds for CMA and celebrates the inductees to the Ohio Artists Hall of Fame.
Women’s Board members also have other opportunities to volunteer at the Museum.
Social and Learning Opportunities
Women’s Board members have three full-membership meetings throughout the year. Plus, social opportunities including the annual Fall Coffee and Holiday Tea events, and monthly Mix and Mingles.
Women’s Board members are also invited to take part in exclusive Art Encounters programs where members learn about different artful topics that inspire and enrich their art appreciation.
