What is the Art Matters endowment and capital campaign?
The Columbus Museum of Art is a museum built for the community, by the community. Generations of families have repeatedly invested in the Museum through their collections, their time, their resources, and their talents. CMA, in turn, has responded by nurturing our outstanding collections and organizing and presenting extraordinary exhibitions and programs. This strong, essential relationship brings people and art together in exciting ways and makes the Museum a true reflection of the community. As the community and the world change, the Museum must keep pace. The Art Matters campaign is our way of keeping pace by transforming our Museum into a twenty-first century experience that fosters creativity. Our vision, created with your input, is to foster a dynamic visitor experience built around a world-class collection, which places CMA at the vanguard of a new movement among art museums that focuses not only on art, but also on visitors and their experiences with art and with each other.
