Donors to the arts, who have made this possible, have done a wonderful thing for families. This generosity will help parents who wish to keep their children busy and mentally stimulated while school is out. And for the adults, many of whom have heavy worries these days, a bit of culture could be a welcome diversion.

As the Director of the Columbus Museum of Art, I’m beyond proud to be able to say that thanks to the generosity and support of our members, CMA will be FREE during the months of July and August. This includes all special exhibitions in July and August.
I know this year has been a challenging one and finding affordable activities during the summer months is important. The Museum is the perfect place for families to take a deep breath, explore new ideas together, and share a special experience with their children.
With the generous support of our members, we are able to provide free admission for all of our visitors throughout July and August. This is just one small way for us to show gratitude for the support the Columbus community has given us over the years. We have developed an enhanced schedule of activities for the summer, including Family Adventures, Art Challenges, Brown Bag with the Artist, Surprise Supplies Saturdays, and musical performances every Sunday.
I encourage you to visit us often and enjoy the many programs available. Visit our website for more information about the many events scheduled throughout the summer.
Usually I use the blog to share information and talk about the many things we are doing here at CMA, but I would also like to ask you to consider supporting Summer Fun with a donation to our Annual Fund.
