Art in Bloom


Columbus Museum of Art is dedicated to remaining a safe and welcoming place for our community, our visitors, and our staff. During this time of heightened vigilance, we have decided for everyone’s safety, we need to postpone Art in Bloom. If you have already purchased tickets to an event or made a donation in support of Art In Bloom, those will carry over to the new dates.*

It is our hope to reschedule this beloved Museum event for early fall with everything already planned remaining the same. We will be in touch as we have more information.
